HRE4 / Heat Roadmap Europe
Heat Roadmap Europe (HRE4) is a project that studies the heating and cooling sector in Europe, and quantifies the effects of increased energy efficiency on both the demand and supply side in terms of energy consumption, environmental impact, and costs. This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
In Europe, there is a clear long-term objective to decarbonise the energy system, but it is very unclear how this will be achieved in the heating and cooling sector. As a result, there is currently a lot of uncertainty among policymakers and investors in the heating and cooling sector, primarily due to a lack of knowledge about the long-term changes that will occur in the coming decades. HRE4 will enable new policies as well as prepare the ground for new investments by creating more certainty in relation to the changes that are required.
Create the scientific evidence required to support the decarbonisation of the heating and cooling sector in Europe.
Heat Roadmap Europe 4 (2016-2019)
Heat Roadmap Europe 4 is mapping and modelling the heating and energy systems of the 14 largest users of heat in the EU, to develop new policies at local, national, and EU level to ensure the uptake of efficient, sustainable and affordable heating and cooling solutions.
As a member of the Advisory Board of Heat Road Europe, EUREC supports the project by enhancing the dissemination and communication of the project activities, while also creating consensus across various technologies and industries in the sector.
