REPLACE Project Final Conference - Keeping the heat on in times of crisis

Share this Post:

The REPLACE project will hold its final hybrid event (online and in Brussels) on 21st March from 10.00 CET to 16.30 CET to present the key findings of the project and discuss the framework conditions for replacement, exchanging old conventional fossil fuel systems with renewable one.

Half of Europe’s energy consumption is used for heating or cooling. However, in 2019, 58 % of the 105.7 million space heaters installed in EU-27 (that were > 61 million units) have been inefficient non-condensing oil and gas boilers. In order to achieve climate neutrality, the decarbonisation of the space heating and cooling in residential sector is therefore essential.


This event is an excellent opportunity to learn how the phase-out of fossil-based heating systems can be brought forward under challenging market conditions in the European agenda.


The REPLACE Project invites you for discussions on how renewable energy at home can contribute to Europe’s energy transition, while empowering consumers in their energy choices.
