EIT InnoEnergy with a consortium of five European companies are finalists of the Helsinki Energy Challenge

EIT InnoEnergy, together with a consortium of five innovative European companies including solar district heating producer Savosolar, and supported assets Heliac, Ecovat, HeatVentors and ConnectPoint, took part in the Helsinki Energy Challenge. This global competition launched by the city of Helsinki aims at identifying new solutions to meet Helsinki’s heating decarbonisation targets by 2030. The team put together an innovative, sustainable and scalable project combining five technological solutions allowing the city of Helsinki to reduce the carbon emissions of its district heating by an impressive 78% by 2030 compared to current levels. This front-running project could serve as an example of sustainable urban heating for other cities worldwide with great CO2 reduction potential.
