& Pan-European Thermal Atlas (Peta4) Launch Event


Update 10/02/2017: New venue, schedule and speakers update. Please note that the event is fully booked. Please contact the planner at if you wish to be added on the waiting list.


The Heat Roadmap Europe 4 workshop will take place on 7 March 2017 at the Renaissance Brussels Hotel n Brussels, Belgium. The event offers the opportunity to get the first package of insights to the 14 largest countries in terms of heat demand which together account for approximately 85-90% of total heating and cooling in Europe. Leading experts will explain how policy-makers, local authorities and industry representatives can use the HRE4 results to their benefit and will help identify the next steps and optimal solutions to decarbonise the heating sector.


Workshop attendees will learn about the different types of heating and cooling demand and supply, the exact heating and cooling potential and where it is located. At the networking cocktail, participants will toast to the launch of the Pan-European Thermal Atlas and exchange views in the casual and 'eco-friendly' atmosphere of the Renewable Energy House.
