ReUseHeat Project - Newsletter #1

Let's not waste heat


We would not throw food away, so why would we waste freely available heat?

There is clearly a lot to be done at European level and beyond on implementing this quite simple philosophy. This is where the ReUseHeat story starts: the first H2020 project aiming to demonstrate advanced, modular and replicable systems enabling the recovery and reuse of excess heat available at urban level.

Our regular newsletter will bring you project news, results and updates on the four unconventional waste heat sources and the respective demo sites covered by the project. Stay tuned!

Data Centres

The data centre has an extensive cooling demand, producing excess heat - which will be fed to a low temperature district heating network


Underground Transport

Waste heat produced in a metro station will be recovered and reused to provide heating and hot water to an adjacent shopping centre


Waste Water Management

An integrated urban planning concept will include the innovative recovery of waste heat from the neighbourhood's sewage system


Tertiary Buildings

.An advanced solution based on heat recovery from a hospital's cooling production process will liked to the nearby district heating



Project meeting and demo site visit in Bucharest

On 13-14 March 2018, the ReUseHeat project team together with the advisory board received a warm welcome in Bucharest, Romania. Work is ongoing on mapping the waste heat recovery potential from the unconventional urban sources covered by the project, as well as on setting up the four corresponding demonstration sites.The highlight of the two days was the visit to the Romanian demonstration site.


First ReUseHeat Workshop In Bucharest

The first technical workshop of the ReUseHeat Project took place in Bucharest on 15 March 2018.The workshop succeeded in facilitating the cooperation among the local stakeholders and transferring useful insights about current European best practices to recover waste heat and related technical and non-technical barriers.


ReUseHeat brochure published

The new ReUseHeat project presentation brochure is now available online.

Learn more on how to recover and reuse excess heat from urban sources, discover key facts and figures as well as the details of the four demonstration sites.



Focus on project results:

25 cases of urban waste heat recovery

As one of the first project outputs, the ReUseHeat team has worked on existing case studies of urban waste heat recovery. The catalogue contains 25 existing or planned projects which make use of urban excess heat. The cases gathered serve as small-case inspirational projects on how to utilise excess heat from urban sources for heating and cooling purposes.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 767429
