Heating and Cooling: Towards a Fossil-Free Reality?

The Renewable Energy Directive (RED II) is the first piece of EU legislation to address the decarbonisation of the H&C sector, which represents about 50% of Europe’s energy consumption. But while the RED II sets an objective of mainstreaming renewables in H&C, it does not elaborate on the means to deliver.

With the Clean Energy Package being finalised, discussions on the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) starting, and the mid-century decarbonisation roadmap underway, there is no better time to discuss how the H&C sector can contribute to the EU’s climate and energy objectives.

This stakeholder workshop brings together policymakers and other experts to discuss the future of the H&C sector. The keynote speech will be delivered by Dominique Ristori, Director General for Energy, European Commission.

Questions will include:

– How can Europe plan a fossil fuel phase-out up to 2050?
– Can renewable energies in H&C reach mass market?
– Considering the long investment cycles (15 years), what funding mechanisms have to be put in place to decarbonise the sector?
