Heat roadmap Germany: Aligning district energy and building energy renovation – A vision on strategic integrations
HRE4 provided new capacity and skills for lead-users in the heating and cooling sector by developing the data, tools, methodologies and results necessary to quantify the impact of implementing more energy efficient measures on both the demand and supply side of the sector.
BPIE organised a workshop in Berlin on January 24, 2019, divided in two parts: the morning workshop focused on the key link between district energy and building renovation and how to align governance in a strategic approach to combine and integrate them, with presentations from the project and frontrunner cities.
In the afternoon, a Market Uptake Dialogue session was organised: after a short introduction into the research done to develop business cases and business strategies to encourage market uptake, the event focused on how to decarbonise the energy system, gathering and discussing cases from the audience to investigate replicability. How to address barriers for the market uptake of recommended heating and cooling solutions? What are the policy recommendations to derive from them?
