RHC-ETIP Annual Event: Innovation in the renewable heating and cooling sector

20 Jun 2017 - 21 Jun 2017
Location: Brussels - Belgium

The European Technology and Innovation Platform on Renewable Heating & Cooling (RHC-ETIP) brings together stakeholders from the biomass, geothermal, solar thermal and heat pump sectors – including the related industries such as district heating and cooling, thermal energy storage, and hybrid systems – to define a common strategy for increasing the use of renewable energy technologies for heating and cooling.
The RHC-ETIP will organise the 2017 edition of its annual event on 20th June in Brussels, during the European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW). The event aims to present innovative projects in the renewable heating and cooling sector, with a view to discussing the conditions to support innovations in the RHC sector and to highlighting research priorities to be addressed in the future.

Unlocking the huge innovation potential of the RHC sector is crucial to achieve the targets of the Clean Energy Package. By presenting already ongoing progress and the work of the RHC-ETIP, the event will promote a discussion with all relevant stakeholders on how innovation can be stimulated based on the existing experiences in the RHC sector.

The RHC-ETIP is looking forward to welcoming  our members and all other stakeholders who are interested in our work on the definition of research and development priorities.
