Side-Event: The role of Renewables25 February 2015, 16.30-18.00
The European Commission Charlemagne Building, Brussels
The European Biomass Association (AEBIOM), the European Geothermal Energy Council (EGEC) and the European Solar Thermal Industry Federation (ESTIF), representing the European Renewable Heating sector, are organising a side event on February 25th, 2015, 16.30-18.00, before the Commission’s Conference on Heating and Cooling in the European Energy Transition (26-27 February).
In the framework of the future EU Energy Union, renewable energy projects keep developing, especially in the heat sector. In combination with energy moderation measures, these concrete initiatives answer the challenges the EU is facing today, including security and competitiveness. Renewables are part of the EU energy landscape today and have an essential role to play in the near and long term future. The objective of this side event is to present 3 concrete examples of switching from fossil fuels to renewable heat energy (geothermal, biomass, solar thermal energy) and explain how these contribute to the EU Energy Union objectives (including energy security and decarbonisation) whilst saving money and boosting jobs and investment.
