The goal of Heat Roadmap Europe 4 (HRE4) has been to develop low-carbon heating and cooling strategies, called Heat Roadmaps, by quantifying and implementing changes at the national level for 14 EU Member States, which together account for approximately 85-90% of total heating and cooling in Europe.
Specifically, we aim to:
- Build evidence that supports decarbonization of the heating and cooling sector in Europe.
- Redesign the energy sector by combining the knowledge of local waste heat conditions and potential savings with an energy system analysis.
- Promote transparency in energy research by sharing data, results, models and methodologies on open platforms as well as be open for new partnerships.
