Welcome!

Wel­come to the web­site of the 4th Eu­ro­pean Con­fer­ence on Re­new­able Heat­ing and Cool­ing, which is the an­nual event of the Eu­ro­pean Tech­nol­ogy Plat­form on Re­new­able Heat­ing and Cool­ing (RHC-Plat­form).

You will find the preliminary program here:

Programm outline

This year we in­vite you to join us in Dublin on 22nd-23rd April and dis­cuss with lead­ing ex­perts from around Eu­rope the most promis­ing tech­nol­ogy op­tions for Re­new­able Heat­ing and Cool­ing. We are proud to an­nounce this high-level event which will show­case an out­stand­ing line-up of guests and speak­ers from en­ergy min­istries, the Eu­ro­pean Com­mis­sion and the Eu­ro­pean Par­lia­ment to promi­nent rep­re­sen­ta­tives from in­dus­try and re­search cen­tres.

The high­lights of the con­fer­ence will be the launch­ing of the new Strate­gic Re­search Agenda for Re­new­able Heat­ing and Cool­ing and the de­bate on the sub­se­quent Im­ple­men­ta­tion Roadmap. We warmly in­vite all Mem­bers of the RHC-Plat­form to at­tend the con­fer­ence and con­tribute to iden­tify the most im­por­tant re­search, de­vel­op­ment and demon­stra­tion pro­jects, which we will rec­om­mend for the com­ing re­search frame­work pro­gramme “Hori­zon 2020” of the Eu­ro­pean Union.

The 2013 Eu­ro­pean Con­fer­ence on Re­new­able Heat­ing and Cool­ing is an as­so­ci­ated event of the Irish Pres­i­dency of the Coun­cil of the EU and it is or­gan­ised by the Sec­re­tariat of the RHC-Plat­form with the sup­port of the Eu­ro­pean Com­mis­sion.

As Ire­land takes over the Pres­i­dency of the EU from Jan­u­ary 2013, the Con­ven­tion Cen­tre Dublin (CCD) was se­lected as the ideal lo­ca­tion for this year’s con­fer­ence. This im­pres­sive build­ing sit­u­ated on the quays of the River Lif­fey, near the city cen­tre, is the word’s first car­bon neu­tral con­structed con­ven­tion cen­tre and it is com­mit­ted to long-term en­vi­ron­men­tal sus­tain­abil­ity.

We hope that you will find on this web­site every­thing you need to pre­pare for the most im­por­tant an­nual event for Re­new­able Heat­ing and Cool­ing tech­nolo­gies in Eu­rope.
