The District Energy in Cities Initiative, a multi-stakeholder partnership coordinated by UN Environment, supports local and national governments to build know-how and implement enabling policies that will accelerate investment in low-carbon and climate-resilient district energy systems.

RE‐INVEST is an international research project, which develops robust and cost‐effective renewable energy investment strategies for Denmark and Europe.

sEEnergies is a European research project focusing on Smart Energy Systems and supply chain effects on energy efficiency in all sectors and infrastructure funded European Union’s by Horizon 2020 programme under Grant Agreement No. 846463.

Innovation Fund Denmark has been funding the research projects 4DH and RE-INVEST and supporting all the conferences so far.

The EMD Foundation has as purpose to disseminate and develop knowledge and technology, which aims at reducing resource usage and the impact on the environment. It is a supporting partner of RE-INVEST project.

4DH Research Centre has been a unique collaboration between industry, universities and the public sector that has created focus on and knowledge about the future 4th Generation District Heating potential within the district heating industry.
