Description

The ECOSTILER project took a coordinated approach towards achieving energy efficient communities. The common and essential element of the project involved the use of bio-gas and district heating systems. These acted as tools in the reduction of primary fuel consumption and CO2 emissions in the communities in question. ECOSTILER's approach embraced communities of different sizes, ranging from small to large, from urban to rural, making it a valuable demonstration project in the CONCERTO initiative.
