Combating climate change and ensuring the security of energy supply represent profound challenges for Europe. Adapting the current energy scenario into a truly sustainable one will require realising the full potential of renewable energy sources to satisfy the heating and cooling demand– which accounts for around half of the EU’s final energy consumption.


The European Technology and Innovation Platform on Renewable Heating & Cooling (RHC-Platform) brings together stakeholders from the biomass, geothermal and solar thermal sector - including the related industries such as District Heating and Cooling, Thermal Energy Storage, Hybrid Systems and Heat Pumps - to define a common strategy for increasing the use of renewable energy technologies for heating and cooling.
