RHC-Platform Annual Event
2030 Reasons to Integrate Renewable Heating and Cooling
Innovation, Technology Development and Market Uptake
Renewable heating and cooling (RHC) technologies can significantly contribute to the decrease of fossil fuel imports into the European Union, improve energy efficiency, and reduce GHG emissions. They will be vital to decarbonise the heat sector, which represents roughly half of the final energy demand in the EU. To implement the EU 2020 targets as well as the 2030 climate and energy framework currently under discussion in a cost-efficient way, we must tap their full potential. This will require, however, the development of reliable, efficient and affordable technology.
What is the annual event of the RHC platform?
A joint consultation and policy-event. The morning session will be the presentation of the RHC-Platform Common Technology Roadmap to a wide range of stakeholders.In the afternoon, industry and decision-makers will discuss the role of RHC in the transformation of the energy system with a particular focus on the implementation of the current legislation and the Commission’s proposal for a 2030 climate and energy framework.
Representatives from the research, industry, and policy arenas will join us for presentations and panel debates.
The full agenda will be available shortly here.
