Congratulations to Karelia University who hosted 2nd Year students from the Energy and Environmental technology Department. Students visited the CBG pilot site in Värtsilä and investigated HANDIHEAT's pilot. Marcus Hirvonens introduced students to the world of CBG and it's various possibilities. HANDIHEAT would like to wish all of the students the very best with their 2nd year studies as part of their BSc Degree.

Introduction to Handiheat

Handiheat is funded by Priority Axis 3 of the Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme. HANDIHEAT will focus on energy performance in rural housing and public infrastructure challenges in peripheral and arctic regions.

The overall objective of Handiheat is to develop a set of resources; implementation toolkits, decision making guides and a roadmap for the rural community housing sector. Pilots will provide visible proof and an enduring guide to what can be achieved.

The project focuses on energy networks for rural communities such as housing, both social and private, which are subject to fuel inequity/poverty and reliant on imported fossil fuels for energy. Sustainable solutions will protect rural communities from energy price fluctuations and improve the social wellbeing and quality of living throughout NPA regions.
