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 to four projects/best practices will be presented in each session.
SELECTED PROJECTS / PRACTICES PER TOPIC
You will find below the title or short description of the projects that will be presented during the 100% RHC Workshop:
- GEOFIT, presented by Marco Calderoini, R2M Solution

The RHC ETIP is, therefore, launched a call for abstracts to select the projects to be showcased. The projects/best practices 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.
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.
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: as from 26 August-27 September
