The new Energy Efficiency Directive (EED), repealing the Cogeneration Directive, provides a new legal tool for cogeneration by proposing national heating and cooling plans and other policy initiatives. The CODE2 experts will incorporate as much as possible the final form of these plans in their roadmaps. Dr Fiona Riddoch, Managing Director of COGEN Europe, said “Cogeneration is an opportunity Europe cannot afford to ignore if it wishes to reach its energy and climate targets. Member States should use the opportunities offered in the EED to put the right frameworks in place and address existing hurdles. CODE2 will help by gathering and sharing best practice examples from successful national approaches.”
