In a drastic turn to eliminate coal as the main source of district heating, the City of Helsinki kicked off the Helsinki Energy Challenge – a global one million euro competition to find the future of urban heating. With the aim to find a solution sustainable in the long term, ideas presented must not rely on fossil fuel or biomass fired heating.
The Helsinki Energy Challenge is a challenge competition, open globally to anyone who can propose a sustainable heating solution for Helsinki – consortiums, start-ups, larger and more established companies, research institutions, universities, research groups and individual experts. The only requirement is that participants should join the competition as a team.
The prolonged registration phase ends on 30 September 2020. Read more about Helsinki Energy Challenge at the website: www.energychallenge.hel.fi.
