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

20 Jun 2017 - 20 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. The event "Innovation in the renewable heating and cooling sector" aims to discuss the conditions to increase innovation in the RHC sector in the EU as well as the role of renewable heating and cooling in the SET Plan.

The event will be followed by the Steering Committee meetings of four technology panels of the RHC ETIP:

  • Solar Thermal TP
  • Biomass TP
  • Geothermal TP
  • Heat Pumps TP

Morever, on the 21 June, the RHC-ETIP will also organise a session during the official programme of the European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) with the aim 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. Registrations for this session will be done directly via the EUSEW website.

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.
