Heat Roadmap Europe (HRE): Building the knowledge, skills, and capacity required to enable new policies and encourage new investments in the heating and cooling sector
Solutions developedThis HRE proposal will enable new policies as well as prepare the ground for new investments by creating more certainty in relation to the changes that are required. The work in this proposal will build on three previous HRE studies, all of which have been successfully completed on time and all of which have already influenced high-level policymakers at EU and national level in Europe. The work from these previous studies will be significantly improved in this project. The new knowledge in this project will:
- Improve at least 15 new policies at local, national, or EU level,
- Specify how up to 3,000,000 GWh/year of fossil fuels can be saved in Europe, and
- Quantify how the €3 trillion of investment required to implement these savings will reduce the net cost of heating and cooling in Europe.
