Currently, state-of-the-art wind farms coexist with others of previous technologies that, in addition, are fulfilling or have already fulfilled their useful life, normally 20 years, for which they were designed.
The programme ENTRAIN, which is supported by the EU under Interreg Central Europe, aims to develop renewable energy sources for heating networks and thus improve air quality.
In the framework of the Horizon2020 HARP Project, coordinated by ADENE (Portugal), an analysis of the building stock combined with the heating appliances stock was undertaken for the following countries: France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal. Moreover, an aggregated analysis of the EU27+UK was added.
Data is essential to understand how much a building consumes, how efficient it is and whether the internal comfort is adequate. But how to evaluate this data and see if it is still possible to improve the efficiency of a building?
Half of Europe's energy consumption is used for heating or cooling. Currently, 80 million heating and cooling systems are inefficient. REPLACE, the new EU-project, is helping to change this situation with service-oriented boiler-replacement campaigns in 9 countries across Europe.
