Heat Circulation Innovation Platform North Savo

Carbon-neutral heat production – Heat Circulation Innovation Platform

The goal of Heat Circulation Innovation Platform in North Savo (both development and investment project) project is to promote non-combustion heat production, to promote the use of related technologies such as waste heat recovery, heat storage, heat pump technologies and geothermal heat utilization.

The goal of the project is find out the sources of waste heat in North Savo and possibilities to utilize these sources in heat production by studying both thermochemical and heat stored in the soil and also to find out the utilization of large heat pumps in district heat production.

The target group of projects are

  • companies generating waste heat in production
  • companies developing energy-efficient solutions and services
  • companies interested in energy-efficient equipment deliveries
  • all stakeholders interested the efficient use of energy
  • decision makers of cities, municipalities, and other public organizations
  • owners of companies and properties in different industries.

Promoting carbon-neutral North Savo

At the municipal level, the aim is to reach carbon-neutral North Savo by means of the measures recorded in the Climate Road Map of North Savo by 2035.

Heat Circulation Innovation Platform North Savo – the goal of the project is to promote the carbon-neutral non-combustion-based heat production in the region and regionally promote business opportunies in this context.

In addition of development measures, investment project will improve the Savonia UAS Energy Research Centre’s capacity to conduct research work on thermochemical energy storage and soil-bound energy reserves.
