|Solar Heat Europe is glad to invite you to the High-Level event ‘Heat decarbonisation: a strategic imperative for the EU‘ that will take place on June 20th, at Hotel Renaissance Brussels, starting at 14:00 CET.
Heat represents half of the energy consumption in Europe and its decarbonisation plays a strategic role in the response to the two major crises Europe is facing: climate change and energy security. This High-Level event is dedicated to this topic and will gather different stakeholders, ranging from policymakers to representatives of different industrial sectors.
The current war in Ukraine has shown us that we must revamp completely the heating sector, ensuring the continent’s energy security and protecting the well-being of European citizens. Heat decarbonisation efforts can be improved and the European and the collaboration between the private and public sectors is key to achieving climate and energy security goals.
The event will provide a unique space to discuss the intersection between the recently launched REPowerEU plan, the EU Solar Energy Strategy, and the ongoing discussions on the Renewable Energy Directive, as well as the need for a swift implementation across the EU when it comes to the decarbonisation of heat.
Furthermore, it will include the presentation of the Solar Thermal Roadmap: ‘Energising Europe with Solar Heat‘. The roadmap represents an overview of the contributions this sector can bring to a decarbonised and decentralised energy sector, thanks to the efforts of hundreds of SMEs spread all over Europe.
