Taking our turn for clean energy


Do you know that we work to introduce more energy efficient heating systems in buildings? Thanks to one of our projects, a hospital in Poland is now driven by solar panels, reducing demand for fossil fuels and paving the way for more climate-friendly solutions. 

Utilising the geothermal potential in Romania


In Oradea in western Romania there is great potential to increase the use of geothermal energy. With support from the Grants and in cooperation with Icelandic Geothermal Engineering, the municipality is replacing fossil fuels for district heating.
