In 2020, the experts from the RHC-ETIP worked jointly in a new document, the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda for Climate-neutral Heating and Cooling in Europe. The document identifies the main R&I priorities to address market barriers in the deployment of renewable heating and cooling solutions. The RHC ETIP’s SRIA Twas officially presented at our annual conference, the 100% Renewable Heating and Cooling for a Sustainable Future Event – 100% RHC Event 2020, which the RHC ETIP organised online on the 15th October 2020.
In 2019, the RHC-ETIP prepared its first strategic document, the 2050 Vision for a 100% Renewable Heating and Cooling Sector in Europe. It helps to understand the potential of the various renewable heating and cooling technologies and it shows, through a multidisciplinary approach, the way to follow to achieve a carbon-free HC sector by 2050. Both technical and non-technical issues are discussed, along with the presentation of relevant best cases. The 2050 Vision was presented at the 100% Renewable Heating and Cooling for a Sustainable Future Conference & Workshop, which the RHC ETIP organised on the 28th October in Helsinki, Finland.
