Geothermal industry calls for an internal market for heat


  • PUBLISHED: April 7, 2020

EGEC, the voice of the European geothermal industry, calls on the European Commission President Ursula Von der Leyen to create a European internal market for heat in an open letter published today on EGEC’s website.

We also propose the following measures to implement in 2020:

  • Increasing the 2030 renewable heat target to 50% of consumption by 2030
  • Removing harmful direct and indirect subsidies as well as institutional barriers by 2025 which lock in incumbent fossil fuels consuming applications
  • Applying an upstream carbon price to fossil heat
  • Institutionalising a European Network Transmission System Operators for Heat
  • Establishing an EU Renewable Heating and Cooling Forum
