The European Heat Pump Association (EHPA) will hold the DecarbHeat 2017 conference at the BEL in Brussels from May 11 to 12, 2017.
The DecarbHeat initiative aims to bring together the major players in the heating and cooling industry and other key stakeholders. Together, they can make the vision of a 100% decarbonized European heating and cooling system a reality. The initiative consists of the DecarbHeat Industry Pledge and the DecarbHeat Declaration of Support.
With advent of the Paris agreement, the global society has embarked on a journey towards a fully decarbonized energy system. Europe has signed this agreement. With heating and cooling responsible for 51% of Europe’s total final energy consumption, residential heating covering 50% of this and industrial heating another 25%, decarbonizing heating and cooling as well as energy demand in industry is essential for the energy system to move to zero carbon.
