Press release: The DecarbHeat Initiative is committed to supporting the European Green Deal

The DecarbHeat Initiative assists policymakers to define transparent and sustainable measures to unleash the potential of the heating and cooling sectors towards the renewable energy and energy efficiency targets. Following today’s publication of the European Green Deal by the European Commission, the partners of the DecarbHeat Initiative would like to stress that the decarbonisation of the heating sector will be a success factor for the European Green Deal and the more ambitious CO2 emission reduction target put forward by the European Commission President. Pedro Dias, current covenor of the DecarbHeat Initiative has stated: “Sustainable heating and cooling solutions are readily available today but not yet sufficiently deployed. Through an integrated approach, we are convinced that this sector can contribute greatly to reducing greenhouse gas emission, by bringing to market secure, affordable and climate-friendly energy alternatives, based on efficient and renewable heating and cooling solutions.”
