Ecoheat4EU Workshop on European policy implications (12/04/2011) in Brussels
" Efficiency – maximizing the use of District Heating and Cooling with better legislation"
The workshop was held as part of the European Union Sustainable Energy Week.
On Tuesday 12th of April, Euroheat & Power organized a conference on “Best Practice Legislative examples for District Heating & Cooling” in the frame of the European Union Sustainable Energy Week, in Brussels.Speakers highlighted how district heating and cooling (DHC) have the potential to significantly reduce Europe’s primary energy consumption by recycling heat that otherwise would be wasted.
Sabine Froning (Managing director of EHP) and Birger Lauersen (President of EHP) provided the audience with an overview of the challenges the EU faces today in terms of heat supply and energy efficiency. For the European Commission, Eva Hoos, stressed that District Heating and Cooling should be considered almost as a silver bullet for reaching the EU's energy efficiency targets. Robin Wiltshire (BRE) and Sven Werner (Halmstad University) presented the results of the Ecoheat4eu project, on the most and least favorable legislative frameworks in Europe for DHC.
Finally, Adolf Topp (chairman of EHP energy policy group), concluded by reminding the attendees how important it is to define European policies that can be coherently translated into national energy policies. To achieve this, respecting the energy hierarchy expressed in the three "R's" - reduce, recycle, replace - is key, in particular with a view to reconciling renewables and efficiency policies. Other important measures include heat planning, mandatory heat recovery from thermal power production and, last but not least, CO2 taxation outside the Emissions Trading Scheme. This has already proven efficient in Sweden and Denmark and would give opportunities for DHC as a low-carbon, high-efficiency option for the residential market.
