Solar Heat Europe is the co-organiser of two policy sessions addressing district heating and local renewable energy projects.
Harnessing the potential of energy management and district heating in REPowerEU
Wednesday, September 28, 2022 | 09:30 – 11:00
This session will consider solutions and examples to bridge the gap between building renovation and heating and cooling decarbonisation, which are both essential to reduce the Union’s Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and reduce its energy dependency. The event will discuss how to reduce the EU’s dependence on natural gas in the heating and cooling of buildings through energy management services and efficient district heating and cooling based on renewable heat solutions and waste heat. The session is organised by EFIEES, Euroheat & Power, Agora Energiewende, and Solar Heat Europe.
