Key Information

Country/Region:

Description: 
The European Technology Platform on Renewable Heating & Cooling (RHC-Platform) brings together stakeholders from the biomass, geothermal and solar thermal sector - including the related industries - to define a common strategy for increasing the use of renewable energy technologies for heating and cooling. The Biomass Technology Panel of the RHC-Platform aims to define a common strategy to increase the use of biomass based heating and cooling in Europe in 2020 and beyond. The Panel was launched on 15 April 2009 and is managed by the European Biomass Association. It is composed of four Issue Groups: (1) Biomass fuels (whole supply chain), (2) Technologies for residential heating, (3) Technologies for industries and district heating, (4) Non technological issues (markets, policies, communication, training)
Goal/Aim: 
Increase the share of renewable energy in cooling and heating.
