Call for abstracts

The Eu­ro­pean Tech­nol­ogy and In­no­va­tion Plat­form on Re­new­able Heat­ing and Cool­ing (RHC ETIP) is or­gan­is­ing a tech­ni­cal work­shop in the frame­work of its an­nual event, which will be held in Helsinki (FI) on 28 Oc­to­ber 2019.

The scope of the work­shop is to show­case in­no­v­a­tive pro­jects re­lated to re­new­able heat­ing and cool­ing tech­nolo­gies and best prac­tices for their de­ploy­ment and in­te­gra­tion. The ob­jec­tive is to give vis­i­bil­ity to promis­ing R&I pro­jects and to favour ex­change of knowl­edge among sec­tor stake­hold­ers. The work­shop will be di­vided in four ses­sions, re­spec­tively fo­cus­ing on in­di­vid­ual build­ings, dis­tricts, cities and in­dus­tries. Three pro­jects/best prac­tices will be pre­sented in each ses­sion.

The RHC ETIP is, there­fore, launch­ing a call for ab­stracts to se­lect the pro­jects to be show­cased. The pro­jects/best prac­tices need to re­late to one or more of these cat­e­gories:

  • new or improved technologies for solar thermal, geothermal and bioenergy;
  • new or improved technologies for thermal networks, heat pumps and thermal storage;
  • development or demonstration of hybrid systems;
  • planning and management tools at district and city level;
  • socio-economic analysis on the implementation and uptake of RHC solutions.

The RHC ETIP ac­cepts both in­di­vid­ual and co­op­er­a­tive pro­jects, pub­licly or pri­vately fi­nanced.

Ap­pli­ca­tion process

The RHC ETIP ac­cepts ap­pli­ca­tions by in­di­vid­ual re­searchers, pub­lic or pri­vate re­search or­gan­i­sa­tions, com­pa­nies and pub­lic au­thor­i­ties. Ab­stracts shall be sub­mit­ted by 15 July 2019. The call for projects is closed now.

Se­lec­tion process

Pro­jects/best prac­tices will be se­lected by the RHC ETIP Hor­i­zon­tal Work­ing Groups (HWGs) tak­ing into con­sid­er­a­tion sev­eral as­pects, such as the level of in­no­va­tion, the po­ten­tial for de­ploy­ment and repli­ca­tion, the con­tri­bu­tion to fos­ter mar­ket pen­e­tra­tion of RHC so­lu­tions. The HWGs will pay at­ten­tion to keep the right bal­ance be­tween dif­fer­ent tech­nolo­gies.

  • The application process is closed
  • The selection process is ongoing
  • Communication to the selected projects: 26 August
