EBO Consult manages administrative and technical tasks of several local district heating non profit companies. One of the administrative and technical tasks of EBO Consult is the expansion of district heating area. In order to realise a project, 30% of the heat demand has to be converted to district heating. A packaged deal is proposed to all the area with the same price.
The Package Approach is a marketing tool that allows for a greater engagement of the community. By making a collective proposal, EBO is engaging directly the members of the community to act and think collectively. The only way to reach the required level of sign ups is for the community to mobilize.
By offering a packaged price, EBO is able to offer a lower price to the individual actors (6000 euros per installation). Therefore, members with lower budget can access district heating at a lower price.

Karel from Ecopower
In 2018 Ecopower started with the development of a large district heating project in the city of Eeklo. Despite the fact that this project is in the starting phase of study of the technical and economic feasibility, Ecopower also studied the possibilities of the implementation of the “Package deal” of Danish partner EBO into this project. In the context of REScoop PLUS, three Ecopower employees went to Denmark to learn all about this “Package deal”. Because of the early stage we are in now, the implementation of the “Package deal” is not possible yet. But thanks to the Danish in-house training we are fully inspired and prepared to do so, hopefully in the course of 2020.
