This conference has been organized within the framework of the European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) 2016.   Energy demand for heating and cooling constitutes half of Europe’s energy needs. In the residential and commercial sectors, a sufficient number of technology alternatives are available to achieve a renewable-based system for heating, cooling and hot water production by 2030. The EU will not achieve its climate and energy objectives unless renewable heating and cooling becomes more widely used.
