The European Biomass Association (AEBIOM), the European Geothermal Energy Council (EGEC) and the European Solar Thermal Industry Federation (ESTIF), representing the European Heating sector, are organizing a side event on February 25th, 2015, 16.30-18.00, before the Commission’s Conference on Heating and Cooling in the European Energy Transition (26-27 February).
In the framework of the future EU Energy Union, renewable energy projects keep developing, especially in the heat sector. In combination with energy moderation measures, these concrete initiatives answer the challenges the EU is facing today, including security and competitiveness. Renewables are part of the EU energy landscape today and have an essential role to play in the near and long term future.
The objective of this side event is to present 3 concrete examples of switching from fossil fuels to renewable heat energy (geothermal, biomass, solar thermal energy) and explain how these contribute to the EU Energy Union objectives (including energy security and decarbonisation) whilst saving money and boosting jobs and investment.
Among his priorities, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker indicated his willingness for Europe’s Energy Union to become the world number one in renewable energy. This event showcases the excellent work already underway and demonstrates how Europe can take the lead.
Programme to come soon!
