The progRESsHEAT project aims at assisting policy makers at the local, regional, national and EU- level in developing integrated, effective and efficient policy strategies to achieve a rapid and widespread penetration of renewable and efficient heating and cooling systems. Together with 6 local authorities in 6 target countries across Europe (Austria, Germany, Czech Republic, Denmark, Portugal, Romania), heating and cooling strategies will be developed by a detailed analysis of (1) heating and cooling demands and future developments, (2) long-term potentials of renewable energies and waste heat in the regions, (3) barriers & drivers and (4) a model-based assessment of policy intervention in scenarios up to 2050. progRESsHEAT will assist national policy makers to implement the right policies based on a model- based quantitative impact assessment of local, regional and national policies up to 2050.
The progRESsHEAT project is running from March 2015 to October 2017. The project is supported by the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Union.
