District heating in the EU - What lies ahead? - EURACTIV Virtual Conference

Monday, 24th of October 2022 from 14:30 to 15:45

The "District heating in the EU - What lies ahead?" virtual conference will be an excellent opportunity to discuss the future of district heating in the European Union with the participation of our Policy Director. 
The core of the discussion will be the acknowledgement of the potential system benefits of higher deployment of efficient DHC; the Renewable Energy Directive and its recast, the Energy Efficiency Directive and the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive all include explicit and implicit provisions and implications on the future use and extension of district heating and cooling.
