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

Share this Post:

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.

Making renewable Heating and cooling a priority means efficiently promoting European leadership in renewables, strengthening EU’s energy security, supporting innovative SME’s and improving the health of millions of citizens through better air quality.

All this can be achieved without delay.

The technologies are mature and readily available but require adequate targets, market conditions, and accompanying policy measures.

After the publication of the EU Heating and Cooling Strategy and before the publication of the European Commission’s revised directives on energy efficiency (EED), energy performance of buildings (EPBD), and renewable energy (RES-D), this conference will discuss inspiring strategies and practices shaping the right policy framework across the EU in the ‘year of delivery’.


Who should attend:

  • European, national, local, and regional authorities working on energy
  • Members of the RHC industry
  • Energy Agencies
  • Energy Service Companies
  • Utilities
  • Financial Institutions


Why attend:

  • Hear how others are optimising policies to enable growth
  • Gain intelligence on market and policy trends and the impacts on the economy and energy system structure
  • Enhance your work by discovering innovative solutions to enable the energy transition


About the Event

The event is being organised by a group of Renewable energy trade associations, national authorities, and energy agencies, all of whom are members of the FROnT consortium. It is organised in collaboration with the Dutch presidency of the EU and European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW).

The purpose of the event is to enhance dialogue between all stakeholders in the heating and cooling sector, and to take positive steps towards policies which will enable the efficient and effective transition to a sustainable energy system.
