European Technology and Innovation Platform



Elections for the panel on District Heating & Cooling (DHC) and Thermal Energy Storage

The European Technology and Innovation Platform on Renewable Heating and Cooling (RHC-ETIP) is going through a transition period. It has recently been decided to shift Cross-Cutting activities to Horizontal Groups which will be open to all technology panels. As a consequence, the current Cross-cutting Panel (composed of 3 subpanels on DHC, Thermal Energy Storage and Hybrid Systems) became a new Panel specifically targeting DHC and thermal energy technologies. Euroheat & Power (via its technology platform DHC+) became part of the secretariat and from now on, it will run the panel on District Heating and Cooling and Thermal Energy Storage.

Euroheat & power is therefore looking for up to 7 experts to be appointed as Members of the Steering Committee for this panel. Among the experts, the main roles will be the Chair and 2 Vice-Chairs who will be asked to attend the RHC-ETIP Board meetings that are taking place on average 3 times per year. Board meetings are normally held in Brussels, however the next meeting will be in Graz in the framework of the ISEC2018 conference at the beginning of October.

Euroheat & power warmly invite the members of this panel to present their candidacy for the Steering Committee by sending the candidacy form and your CV by 6 September to dhcplus(at) In the likely case of more than 7 candidatures, a vote will be organised. The mandate is for three years. The new Steering Committee will elect the Chair and the 2 Vice-Chairs as soon as possible after that date in order for them to be able to attend the Board meeting in Graz.
