As part of the DecarbHeat Initiative, the #DecarbHeat conference, which took place in Brussels on 11 and 12 May 2017, aimed to collect ideas from a broad audience on the next steps towards the vision of a 100% decarbonised heating and cooling sector, along four areas of consideration:
- How do scientists and policy makers envision the 2050 energy system and which solutions exist to address the issue of decarbonising the heating sector?
- What are the main challenges for cities, in particular when it comes to the renovation of buildings and whole quarters and how should decarbonized energy be distributed here?
- How will digitalisation challenge the heating and cooling industry – from product design to business models?
- What are the challenges for industry and how can energy demand in industry be meaningfully
The DecarbHeat initiative aims at bringing together the major players of the heating and cooling industry and other major stakeholders. Together they can make the vision of a 100% decarbonised European heating and cooling system a reality. The initiative consists of a the DecarbHeat Industry Pledge and the DecarbHeat Declaration of Support. Both will be formally open for signature at the #DecarbHeat 2017 Forum in Brussels on 11-12 May 2017.
