Comprehensive model of waste heat utilization in CE regions

CE-HEAT project aims to improve the governance of energy efficiency by focusing on field of waste heat utilization in Central Europe space and through increased exploitation of endogenous RES – waste heat. This field was identified as one of the most pressing issues at the regional and local scale - with little success in the past. At the same time the waste heat utilization is recognized as important issue in latest Energy efficiency Directive (2012/27/EU). In order to improve governance in waste heat utilization, better and comprehensive planning, but also monitoring tools are needed.


The CE-HEAT partnership will facilitate this process by:

  • Providing an excellent analytical and monitoring platform through establishment of GIS based regional waste heat cadastres with waste heat sources classification and a monitoring tool;
  • Providing a comprehensive solution for managing waste heat utilization projects and strategies based on the development of a waste heat utilization toolbox (leading stakeholders participation process, establishing feasibility etc.);
  • Incorporating a new approach into local, regional and national strategies by integrating a novel cadastres and toolbox into existing spatial planning and energy management systems and spreading it throughout central Europe and beyond.
