This report from the European Technology Platform on Renewable Heating and Cooling provides a description of the potential deployment of future cost effective technologies in the renewable heating and cooling sector. It identifies major technological and non-technological challenges to the uptake of the renewable heating and cooling systems and assesses the potential of renewable energy sources to contribute to the European and national energy needs and targets. The European Technology Platform on Renewable Heating & Cooling (known, for short, as the RHC-Platform) brings together stakeholders from all renewable energy sources concerned and related industries involved in cross-cutting technologies such as heat pumps, thermal energy storage and district heating to agree on a joint strategy for increasing the use of renewable energy sources for heating and cooling.
