The first LowTEMP 2.0 seminar in Lithuania took place online on 29 March 2021 with 72 participants. It was held by the Lithuanian Energy Institute (LEI) with support and active participation of the associated partner – Lithuanian Thermal Technology Engineers Association (LITES) which consists of professors and lecturers of two technical universities (Kaunas University of Technology and Vilnius TECH) in Lithuania. It targeted district heating companies, experts on heating systems and related energy companies in Lithuania, which are the main stakeholders in the development of Low Temperature District Heating (LTDH). For wider dissemination of the seminar and its results two national associations – Lithuanian District Heating Association and Association of Local Communities in Lithuania – were also involved.
Besides the introduction on climate protection policies and goals and pilot testing measures, the main topics presented were technical ones – pipe systems, combined heat and power (CHP), large scale solar thermal; waste and surplus heat, large scale heat pumps, heat pump systems, low temperature and floor heating, and ventilation systems. The topics were selected by District Heating companies, as it was possible for them to choose them before the seminar.
After the seminar, participants filled in evaluation forms. The seminars were rated as interesting while also providing valuable information, highlighting the presenters and their presentations. All participants received a certificate for completing the seminar.
