What is needed to re-create the urban heating system? It’s a million Euro question! If you want to grab it, we are organising a web event with Helsinki City to support willing participants to the Helsinki Energy Challenge to team up and to create high-impact, winning proposals.

The event is to discuss different aspects that needs to be considered when innovating future heating solutions: What does it take to create future-proof & feasible solution – is technology enough? Why to partner up, why to think differently?

The event consists of short info on the challenge, a panel discussion with experts on what is needed to create the novel solutions that can re-create the urban heating system.
