RH&C ETIP meeting in Brussels

RH&C ETIP meeting in Brussels, June 20, 2017

On June 20, 2017, the Eu­ro­pean Tech­nol­ogy and In­no­va­tion Plat­form on Re­new­able Heat­ing & Cool­ing (RHC – ETIP) organized its annual event at CEN­ELEC headquarters in Brussels.

The (RHC-ETIP) has gathered to­gether stake­hold­ers from the bio­mass, ge­ot­her­mal, solar ther­mal and heat pump sec­tors – in­clud­ing the re­lated in­dus­tries such as dis­trict heat­ing and cool­ing, ther­mal en­ergy stor­age, and hy­brid sys­tems – in order to de­fine a com­mon strat­egy for in­creas­ing the use of re­new­able en­ergy tech­nolo­gies for heat­ing and cool­ing.

The plenary meeting was fol­lowed by the Steer­ing Com­mit­tee meet­ings of four tech­nol­ogy pan­els of the RHC ETIP:

  • Solar Thermal TP
  • Biomass TP
  • Geothermal TP
  • Heat Pumps TP

During the meeting of the Geothermal TP, all the EU and nationally funded projects in the geothermal field were presented, and a very interesting debate was triggered by the future EU calls for the same geothermal sector.

From behalf the Cheap-GSHP Project, the participants were: Adriana Bernardi, Luc Pokele, Javier Urchueguia, Ric Pasquali and Robert Gavriliuc.
