Description

Navigating the transition to renewable heating and cooling in Europe: Policy recommendations and lessons learned from local case studies

Workshop organised in the framework of the 4DH Conference

Summary and objective

The Horizon 2020 project progRESsHEAT aims at assisting policy makers at the local, regional, national and EU-level in developing integrated, effective and efficient policy strategies to achieve a rapid and widespread penetration of renewable and efficient heating and cooling systems. Together with 6 local authorities in 6 target countries across Europe (Austria, Germany, Czech Republic, Denmark, Portugal, Romania), heating and cooling strategies are developed by a detailed analysis of (1) heating and cooling demands and future developments, (2) long-term potentials of renewable energies and waste heat in the regions, (3) barriers & drivers and (4) a model-based assessment of policy intervention in scenarios up to 2050.

The workshop aims to share lessons learned and experience with policy instruments and strategies to efficiently support the transition to a sustainable heating and cooling sector. Key results of the progRESsHEAT project are presented and discussed with the participants.
