About the 100% RHC Event
The 100% Renewable Heating and Cooling for a Sustainable Future – 100% RHC Event, will be organised by the RHC European Technology & Innovation Platform (RHC ETIP) on the second day of the 2nd International Sustainable Energy Conference (ISEC) on October 15th 2020 in Graz, Austria. The event is built on the success of the previous ISEC edition in 2018, which mobilized almost 400 participants from 51 countries, and organised in cooperation with the Institute for Sustainable Technologies AEE INTEC and the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation.
The event will bring together RHC experts from the platform, as well as external stakeholders, to discuss on three broad topics related to renewable heating and cooling: research, business and energy policy. The agenda so far will feature: the Keynote speech of the new Chair of the RHC ETIP, Dr. Javier Urchuegía; the presentation of the next publication of the platform, the Strategic Research & Innovation Agenda; a panel discussion on technology breakthroughs; and a national roundtable with Austrian representatives.
Further details about the agenda will be published on the website soon. Submissions for abstracts for ISEC 2020 are currently open:
