Heat Roadmap Europe Pre-study 1
HRE1 (2012) was developed to understand if it is possible to combine local mapping of the heat demand with national energy planning to create a holistic heat strategy on a European scale. Furthermore, it aims to make a geographic and system analysis of the European heating sector, in addition to introducing the idea that district heating could play a significant role in decarbonising the EU energy system, as well as suppressing costs.
