The Upgrade DH project supported and initiated the upgrading process of eight district heating demo cases in Europe in the following countries: Bosnia-Herzegovina, Denmark, Croatia, Germany, Italy, Lithuania, Poland, and The Netherlands and provided the basis for replication to other cities.

Innovative business and organisational models were applied, the upgrading process for selected district heating networks was supported, the organisation of capacity building measures about district heating upgrading, financing and business models was organised, and national and regional action plans were elaborated. In addition, an image raising campaign for modern district heating networks was carried out.
