24 May 2017 // progRESsHEAT webinar - Non-discriminatory access to district heating: Opportunities and challenges for renewable energies

13:00-15:00 CEST
Organised as part of the progRESsHEAT project

The proposal for a revised directive on renewable energy from the European Commission includes a new article on district heating and cooling. This article 24 also foresees the non-discriminatory access to district heating and cooling systems for renewable heating and cooling supply. Some proponents expect an important push for renewable energy from this provision. Others see severe problems due to the essential differences between electricity and district heating grids.

In this webinar, representatives from the European Commission, Euroheat & Power, AEBIOM (Bioenergia-Finland), Copenhagen District heating Company and from the progRESsHEAT project will present their views on the issue and will discuss related questions with the participants.
