The developed profiles provide a detailed picture of today's heating and cooling energy use in the industrial, residential and service sectors. They help to answer questions about how heating and cooling is used, as well as where it already is, and is not (yet) relevant. Furthermore, the profiles also show which types of energy inputs (e.g. electricity, natural gas, biomass, etc.) are used to supply the identified heating and cooling demands for each (sub-)sector. This consistent set of data provides a solid understanding of the status-quo of European heating and cooling.
To explore the 2015 profiles, a brochure, a background report, country presentations and a spreadsheet data set are available.
Published in June 2017, during the EU Sustainable Energy Week 2017, this brochure presents an overview of the current state of the energy demand for heating and cooling in the EU. It opens the door to what needs to be done to complete the transformation towards a low-carbon heating and cooling sector.
The following presentations show a summary of each country’s heating and cooling profiles; both from a general perspective and by sector.
You can download the resulting profiles of heating and cooling demand in here. These Excel spreadsheets give you access and explore results not only for the 14 HRE4 countries, but also for the rest of the 28 EU member states.
The baseline energy system models for 2015 and 2050 of the 14 EU countries participating in HRE are available here. The models for the EnergyPLAN tool will be the point of departure in the development of the Heat Roadmap scenarios and serve as reference when assessing the possible impact of these scenarios.
The models have been created based on annual baseline data from the JRC-EU-TIMES model and cover the large 14 EU MSs in terms of heating demand.
A brief guide of how to load and run the models in EnergyPLAN can be found here.
During the previous project STRATEGO, there were created EnergyPLAN Models for Each Country too. They are available here: Stratego -EnergyPLAN Models for Each Country
This short video explains how you can access and use the hourly energy system models from HRE3. For more information about the EnergyPLAN visit the website here.
Using this map, you can download a variety of resources linked to specific countries in Europe. The map includes relevant reports and maps made by other parties, as well as results from HRE project. To include your maps or add a link, please contact us.
