What is the problem?
What ENTRAIN aims to achieve...
Find here the project main outputs:
the first step is "preparing the local ground", with an initial survey of the target areas, guidelines for the evaluation of renewable heat potential and the actual evaluation for the five target regions.
The second is "knowledge transfer" from our Austrian and German partners, with QM Holzheizwerke translations and trainings. Last step, action plans and pilot projects in each of the target regions!
To zoom-in to each region and read documents in national language, scroll down to the section below.
Let's learn from our expert partners! We have planned 5 train-the-trainers sessions in which the consortium and external guests are going to benefit from our German and Austrian partners' knowledge and experience in renewable district heating. Training is based on the QM system and guidelines but covers funding/economy, operation and optimisation, consumer relations, emissions/air quality, fuel and ash logistic as well.
The 2nd and 3rd trainings have been recorded: watch them HERE
Emissions, air-quality and ash logistics have been the topics of the 3rd "train-the-trainers" session, at the beginning of December.

Neckar-Alb's pilots cover different project development stages and concepts. E.g., not only a carbon-neutral but carbon-negative energy supply of a farm offering inclusive jobs. A goal that could be achieved with a combination of solar thermal and the pyrolysis of biomass.

Keeping our cities sustainably warm: Inspiring the Efficient Renewal of District Heating for the Just Transition
Let's join our twin project KeepWarm and its team to wrap up the project story! Find out the excellent speakers confirmed:
Economic calculations, financing and funding for RES district heating have been the topics of the second training inside the ENTRAIN partnership on June 18th.
Thanks a lot to our AT and DE partners for this precious knowledge transfer and to external guests who joined our online meeting!
Guess where close to half of all Germany solar district heating plants are located? ...in Baden-Wuerttemberg, enclosing one of ENTRAIN target regions! SDH is increasingly recognized as a mature technology: high investment costs can be balanced through state incentives.
We analized three Croatian counties for estimating the potential of RES in DH networks. By combining forestry+short rotation crops, biomass could cover 1/3 of the overall demand in the area.
...and what about those sun-bathed roofs?
