EGEC has undergone a complete update of its visual identity and today unveiled its new logo and website.
Cranfield University, UK, has launched a new Geothermal Engineering MSc, designed to meet the growing demand for specialists capable of ensuring this abundant renewable energy source is turned into a constant and independent supply. The MSc will start at Cranfield University in October 2017.
Over 50 participants completely filled up the Maelbeek room at the Résidence Palace Building, Brussels, to attend the session “Innovation in the Renewable Heating and Cooling sector”, organised by the RHC-ETIP as part of the official programme of the European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) 2017 on 21st June. The programme intended to showcase successful stories of innovation in the renewable heating and cooling (RHC) currently in progress.
For an ambitious and coherent 2030 framework for climate and energy policies, binding targets are needed for energy savings, renewable energy and greenhouse gas emission reduction. This is the successful triangle for an 80%-95% GHG emission reduced Europe by 2050 and be in line with the Paris Climate Agreement.
The Annual Event “Innovation in the Renewable Heating and Cooling sector” of the European Technology and Innovation Platform on Renewable Heating and Cooling (RHC-ETIP) was successfully held on Tuesday 20th June, in Brussels, Belgium.
The International Energy Agency, which includes OECD countries and covers other major economies such as China or India, has issued its 2017 Tracking Clean Energy Progress report. In this publication, the Agency assesses the consistency of the deployment of different energy technologies with the 2°C scenario, and identifies those that are on-track and those that are not.
The EU founded project GEMex - Cooperation in Geothermal energy research Europe-Mexico for development of Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) and Superhot Geothermal Systems (SHGS) – has launched a call for interest inviting experts to be part of the GEMex Stakeholders Board.
EGEC has released a policy paper assessing the current European Commission’s energy modelling for heating and cooling, used to generate forecasts that serve as basis for policy proposals and policy making. The resulting analysis shows a lack of robustness in the Commission’s forecasts for the heating and cooling sector, which translates in a lack of ambition, in the initial Commission’s proposal, for the future of the renewable heating and cooling (RES-HC) sector.
After months of work, the rapporteurs on the Clean Energy Package have started issuing their draft reports on several files of the legislative bundle. These draft reports will constitute the basis for discussion in the European Parliament about the different regulations.
