The European Technology and Innovation Platform on Renewable Heating & Cooling (RHC-ETIP) brings together stakeholders from the biomass, geothermal and solar thermal sector – including the related industries – to define a common strategy for increasing the use of renewable energy technologies for heating and cooling. Four major European organisations – EUREC, AEBIOM, EGEC and ESTIF – are supporting through the RHC-ETIP Secretariat the process towards the definition of a joint Vision and Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda for the renewable heating and cooling sector.
EUREC role: in quality of project coordinator, EUREC is the ultimate responsible for supporting and coordinating the activities of the RHC-ETIP’s Members
The work to be performed by the project Partners is going to be divided into four Work Packages: the first three Work Packages are technical, and aim at performing the studies, as requested by the call for tenders “Support to key activities of the European technology Platform on Renewable Heating and Cooling”; the fourth Work Package is horizontal and covers management and communication activities.
More specifically, the four Work Packages are:
- Implementation of the RHC-Platform Roadmaps
- Analysis of the Heating and Cooling industry
- Analysis of the heating and cooling consumers
