Heat Roadmap Europe Pre-study 2
Heat Roadmap Europe (2013) identifies the potential for using local resources across Europe, and subsequently applies this in the EU27 energy system. Since this is a pre-study, some key assumptions were necessary due to the limited time and resources available to investigate a pan-European energy system. However, it outlines the previously unconsidered potential of district heating and cooling in the EU, while also highlighting the need for new tools, data, and methodologies to analyse the specific requirements of district heating and cooling as technologies.
