Support to key activities of the European technology platform on renewable heating and cooling
In order to support the activities of the European Technology and Innovation Platform on Renewable Heating and Cooling (RHC-ETIP), the associations making up its secretariat performed a number of analyses focused on:
- monitoring the implementation of the RHC-ETIP’s five roadmaps with a view to examining the technological advances made since the roadmaps’ publication between 2013 and 2014;
- analysing the heating and cooling industry to gain an overview of the technologies’ supply chains, the R&D capacities, the prevalent business models and the status of global competition in the heating and cooling sector;
- analysing heating and cooling consumers to arrive at a sound basis for recommendations on new business models and regulatory interventions aimed at removing barriers to consumer acceptance of RHC technology solutions.
