Webinar on “Renewable heating and cooling in Croatia: Answer to the current challenges of high prices and security of supply”

24 May 2022 Online
Bringing together policy experts, industrial and academic actors from Croatia, the session will provide key insight into the answers for the current challenges in heating and cooling. The share of renewable energy used for heating and cooling in Croatia currently stands at 35%. There have been early success stories, from successful policy initiatives to cities taking measures to decarbonise heat supplies, but there is still a lot of work to be done. Croatia is highly dependent on natural gas, and so the recent geopolitical developments have major implications for the sector, with energy prices rising dramatically. The workshop will explore ways to encourage innovation and facilitate market uptake of renewable heating and cooling technologies.
