The conference will bring together leading experts from all Renewable Heating and Cooling (RHC) industries, such as biomass, geothermal, solar thermal, heat pumps, thermal energy storage and district heating and cooling sector; in order to learn and discuss the latest trends and developments.

The new Strategic Research Agenda for Renewable Heating and Cooling will be launched in the two-day event, and there will be a debate on the subsequent Implementation Roadmap. The debate aims to discuss the potential of RHC at both EU and national level.

Energy is an important aspect of every green city and the work done in conferences like the 4th European Conference Renewable Heating and Cooling paves the way for more European cities to provide a secure, sustainable supply of energy to its citizens. While judging the potential European Green Capital cities, the Jury pays attention to the way in which the city manages its energy supply and the framework it has in place.

The current European Green Capital Nantes has set as a priority the promotion of energy efficiency and as a result has systematically reduced energy consumption and loss in housing, public and commercial buildings in the last few years. The installation of wind and solar electricity-generation facilities are just some of the sustainable solutions under construction.
