Heat Roadmap Europe (HRE) added major new features to its energy planning tool, the perfect basis for European governments, businesses, consultants, academics, and planners to make informed decisions about investments in energy efficiency measures and use of untapped alternative energy sources for heating and cooling. The tool will also support the implementation of European climate commitments, ensure wiser investment of public money, reduce costs for consumers, and cut carbon emissions and energy consumption.

Certified characteristics of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) appliances are useful for product selection and users’ information needs. They also contribute to a fair competition between manufacturers. Certification of the energy performance parameters makes available trustworthy input data for the energy performance calculation of buildings.
What is certification?
