The European Commission has published on the 26th of November 2016 the report ‘Overview of support activities and projects of the European Union on energy efficiency and renewable energy in the heating & cooling sector’.
This report provides an overview on the Horizon 2020 funded projects and the 7 th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development in the area of heating and cooling. This document goes in line with the EU heating and cooling strategy adopted in February 2016.
According to the report, more research and innovation is required to further improve and develop technologies and solutions that allow exploiting the full potential of low carbon and renewable energy sources for heating and cooling. There is already a wide range of proven technologies and solutions available on the market although more is needed to increase their market share. Against this background, the programmes of the EU come to provide direct support to the objectives of the heating and cooling strategy supporting actions in vital areas.
