This report presents the activities performed in the heating and cooling initiative of the Smart Specialisation Platform on Energy (S3PEnergy). The objective of the initiative was to support regions to improve their heating and cooling strategies and to enhance their chances to access EU funds for their projects. Three workshops brought together regional representatives and experts in the field of heating and cooling. At the workshops information about available heating and cooling technologies, best-practise examples of implementation of heating and cooling strategies and financial options were discussed. Four public reports were prepared: (1) workshop summaries; (2) available EU funding sources; (3) case studies on EU funding strategies for four heating and cooling projects from this initiative, and (4) this report. The project lasted from September 2017 until February 2019.
