Heat Roadmap Europe: Quantitative comparison between the electricity, heating, and cooling sectors for different European countries
This paper (2017) compares the electricity, heating, and cooling sectors at national level for various European countries. Annual energy demands are compared for all 28 EU countries, while peak hourly demands are compared for four countries that vary significantly. Electricity, heating, and cooling demands are all likely to change significantly in the future with increasing electrification, energy efficiency (e.g. building insulation), and improved comfort (especially for cooling). Some extreme scenarios are presented here to quantify the potential impact of these changes on the electricity sector.
Key words: district heating, district cooling, electricity, scenarios, peak demands, heat pumps, Horizon 2020
