Joint open letter to Frans Timmermans about decarbonising buildings without hydrogen


  • PUBLISHED: January 21, 2021

EGEC, together with a broad group of businesses, civil society organisations and think tanks sent an open letter to Executive Vice-President Frans Timmermans.

The letter underlined that while renewable hydrogen can play a role in decarbonising hard-to-abate sectors, its direct use for heating on a large scale is problematic because it comes with many uncertainties linked to the scalability, costs of its production and inefficiencies.

In the medium and long-term, to optimise the process of heat decarbonisation, energy efficiency options must be favoured, while accommodating a growing share of renewable sources.
