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.
