This is an output of the EU Interreg 2 Seas funded project SHIFFT – Sustainable Heating: Implementation of Fossil Free Technologies. This module is concerned with how cities and local governments can engage citizens and stakeholders in co-creating visions and plans for zero carbon heating.
SHIFFT targets the barriers and levers to growth of zero carbon heat in households and communities and this document aims to provide guidance as to which co-creation strategies can be applied by cities. In particular, the role of the municipality in reaching a broad range of stakeholders and maintaining their involvement throughout the process is explained, and examples of good practice are described.
This document is one of a four-part guide on how to accelerate the heat transition in cities. Module two covers the range of financial instruments and their application . Module three focuses on city heat strategies, regulation, and other non-financial policy instruments. Module four addresses the technologies and technical aspects of the heat transition in cities.
