The Heat Roadmap Europe 4 workshop in Brussels is a great opportunity to get the first package of insights to the 14 largest countries in terms of heat demand which together account for approximately 85-90% of total heating and cooling in Europe. Leading experts will explain how policy-makers, local authorities and industry representatives can use the HRE4 results to their benefit and will help identify the next steps and optimal solutions to decarbonise the heating sector.
Workshop attendees will learn about the different types of heating and cooling demand and supply, the exact heating and cooling potential and where it is located. At the networking cocktail, participants will toast to the launch of the Pan-European Thermal Atlas and exchange views in the casual atmosphere.

Attendance is free. This event is currently fully booked. We are currently reviewing the registration list to accommodate more participants. Please contact the planner at email@example.com if you wish to be added on the waiting list. Thank you for your understanding!
Heat Roadmap Europe 4 had a thriving 2016, and here is a look back at what we achieved in terms of communication and dissemination events over the last 10 months since the project kick-off in March.
The project benefited from ample visibility, with project partners spreading the HRE messages to the broader audience throughout Europe and across the globe.
Over 30 international and national conferences were attended, where consortium members held academic and general presentations to share HRE4 experiences and findings. This included, to name just a few, large events such as the 5th International Symposium on District Heating and Cooling in Korea, smaller regional events such as the South East European Sustainable Development of Energy Water and Environment Systems (SDEWES) conferences in Slovenia, and targeted workshops such as the SmartReFlex final workshop in Denmark.
Many interesting meetings with lead-users from national associations and industry also took place last year. Project partners and interested parties shared knowledge and explored opportunities for accelerating the uptake of low carbon and energy efficient heating and cooling. For example, HRE met with the French district heating association(SNCU), the Department of Energy in Ireland (DCENR), the PTTE Competence Centre in the Czech Republic, Grundfos (world's largest pump manufacturer) and many more!
HRE also received plentiful press coverage in popular and scientific publications, with articles published in Energy - The International Journal, Hot Cool Magazine, Nordisk Energi and EU SETIS Magazine, and more.
A big thanks to all partners, our heating-cooling and energy colleagues and associates for your hard work. The bar has been set high, and we look forward to another promising year ahead!
As part of the HRE4 project, a series of events will be organised to enhance the exchange of good practice, and provide guidance on the implementation of heating and cooling strategies in a local context. These include:
