Oct 13, 2022: Energy Opticon participates in the conference "Decarbonisation through sustainable heating and cooling" in Paris

Energy Opticon participates in the conference "Decarbonisation through sustainable heating and cooling", which is organized by Business Sweden and the Swedish Embassy in Paris on October 13.

Sweden has one of the world's most integrated and developed systems for district heating and cooling covering more than 60% of all Swedish homes and commercial buildings. During the last decades, Sweden has achieved substantial reductions of CO2-emissions while maintaining high and sustainable economic growth. The nationwide expansion of efficient district heating and cooling derived from non-fossil energy sources is an important contributor to such outcomes. The next step is exploring negative emissions, where Swedish companies are developing new technologies for their climate change portfolios, such as CO2 capture and storage (CCS).

Within the framework of the Swedish–French strategic partnership for innovation, digitalization and green solutions, French and Swedish companies from the district heating and cooling sector will be welcomed to the Swedish Embassy in Paris for a unique conference and networking lunch on Decarbonisation through sustainable heating and cooling.

The aim is to discuss challenges and solutions for district heating and cooling networks by sharing experiences from French and Swedish decarbonization journeys. Industry representatives will present solutions and best practices for sustainable networks during the panel discussion and presentations, followed by interactive Q&A sessions. Keynote speakers from world-shaping energy companies, Stockholm Exergi, Idex and Engie, will share their perspectives on decarbonising the heating and cooling sector.

Energy Opticon participates in the panel discussion "Smart solutions for efficient energy production and consumption", together with Noda Intelligent Solutions. Other Swedish high-tech and innovation companies, such as Crossbreed, will also be participating in the event.

The event will take place at the Swedish Embassy, 17 Rue Barbet de Jouy, 75007 Paris on Thursday 13 October 2022, starting at 9:00 – 12:00 followed by a networking lunch.
