How to make the EU number one in Renewable Heating and Cooling (EUSEW 2016)

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.

New report investigates the risks of overheating in the UK care sector

A new report, published by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, looks into the risks of summertime overheating and the readiness level of care facilities, with respect to the consequences of climate change. The report reviews existing evidence and presents primary research in four case study care settings (two residential and two extra care) geographically spread across England.
