Last week REDI4Heat has organised the 3rd Consortium meeting and the 2nd EAB meeting in Brussels, Belgium – hosted by on of the partner onsite, Energy Cities.
During these 2 days, Work Package and Task leaders have given an update on the work carried out over the past months and discussed the plan for the upcoming activities and finally, after a year of work and commitment, many results are coming!
The NECPs’ assessment regarding heating and cooling measure proposed in view of the 2030 targets, developed in Work Package 2, will be finalised soon – This analysis will review the proposed H&C renewable energy measures and show what is in place in terms of support mechanisms, what the market development has been and what remains to be implemented in the coming years.
This will be very useful to identify the barriers to the implementation, best practices and the main elements that characterise them, either included in the plans or already implemented in different member states (not only project countries), at national or at local level.
In parallel, Work Package 3 will also complete, in early 2024, the identification of the Key Success Factors and Key Performance Indicators deemed necessary to achieve an effective increase in the uptake of renewable heat.
These and other activities carried out so far are crucial for the next step: the design of a NECP assessment guideline (for the revision of the NECPs) to support Member States in identifying H&C decarbonisation key drivers, missing elements, weaknesses and strengths.
