WEDISTRICT aims to demonstrate that District Heating and Cooling systems can be built on a combination of renewable energy sources and waste heat recovery solutions and thus be 100% fossil-free.
ESCI's role in the project:
ESCI manages the communication and dissemination activities, raising awareness about fossil free District Heating and Cooling solutions developed within the project and increasing their public acceptance. ESCI takes care of the visual identity of the project, the website and social media presence. ESCI creates supporting material, such as project brochure, posters, postcards, etc. to enhance the project presence on conferences and meetings. Throughout the project, ESCI creates original content, which is at the heart of project communication: press releases, news pieces, interviews and blog posts explain key features and advances of the project and are distributed via relevant channels. ESCI is also responsible for behavioural change activities (focus groups with citizens, an awareness campaign) that target local communities at two demo sites of the project. In the end of the project, ESCI will produce an explainer video for each demo site to visualise the project solutions and their benefits.
