On Wednesday 9th of February the EU HEATER Project hosted the first in its series of webinars titled 'Heat Solutions in Rural Areas'. The event showcased the innovative outputs and renewable energy pilots featured in the HANDIHEAT, SMARTRenew and eLightHouse projects, and explored the challenges of finding heat solutions for rural, sparsely populated areas within the NPA region.
The three speakers represented three partners from the HEATER Project including:
• Robert Clements, Northern Ireland Housing Executive (HANDIHEAT) See Presentation
• Dr Nick Timmons, Letterkenny Institute of Technology (SMARTRenew) See Presentation
• Anu Montin, Oulu University of Applied Sciences (eLightHouse) See Presentation
HEATER is a cluster of projects with synergies across HANDIHEAT, SMARTRenew, TechSolns, SENDoc and eLightHouse. The partnership with WiSAR Lab, Letterkenny Institute of Technology (SMARTRenew project), Ulster University (SENDoc/TechSolns), Oulu University of Applied Sciences and HANDIHEAT, Northern Ireland Housing Executive aims to collaborate and cluster the transnational outputs from previous projects to educate and empower local communities to effect positive behavioural change and inform decision makers to influence policy across climate change mitigation and adaptation and sustaining communities.
