Navigating the transition to renewable heating and cooling in Europe: Policy recommendations and lessons learned from local case studies

A workshop organised by Energy Cities in the framework of the 3rd international Conference on Smart Energy Systems and 4th Generation District Heating

This progRESsHEAT workshop aims to share lessons learned and experience with policy instruments and strategies to efficiently support the transition to a sustainable heating and cooling sector. Key results of the progRESsHEAT project are presented and discussed with the participants.

The Horizon 2020 project progRESsHEAT aims at assisting policy makers at the local, regional, national and EU-level in developing integrated, effective and efficient policy strategies to achieve a rapid and widespread penetration of renewable and efficient heating and cooling systems. Together with 6 local authorities in 6 target countries across Europe (Austria, Germany, Czech Republic, Denmark, Portugal, Romania), heating and cooling strategies are developed by a detailed analysis of (1) heating and cooling demands and future developments, (2) long-term potentials of renewable energies and waste heat in the regions, (3) barriers & drivers and (4) a model-based assessment of policy intervention in scenarios up to 2050.

progRESsHEAT webinar: Estimating and mapping potentials for industrial excess heat - Methods and results from four studies

Organised by Energy Cities as part of the progRESsHEAT project
Using excess heat from industrial installations can be an economically viable as well as energy-efficient solution that contributes to a decarbonization of the heating and cooling sector.
In this webinar, results and methods from four recently finished state-of-the-art studies are presented. The studies vary, among others, in their geographical focus, their methods used and in their spatial resolution.
