This week iNSPiRe will be attending the Renewable Heating and Cooling (RHC) Conference in Dublin. More details about the conference can be found here.
Every year, almost 50% of the total energy consumed in Europe is used for the generation of heat for either domestic or industrial purposes. The vast majority of this energy is produced through the combustion of fossil fuels such as oil, gas and coal – with an impressive environmental impact in terms of greenhouse gas emissions. Today the social, natural and economic costs of climate change highlight the urgency of moving towards a new and more sustainable energy scenario.
The European Technology Platform on Renewable Heating & Cooling (RHC-Platform) brings together stakeholders from the biomass, geothermal and solar thermal sector – including the related industries – to define a common strategy for increasing the use of renewable energy technologies for heating and cooling.
iNSPiRe will attend to present the project and have designed a poster to summarise the project aims and objectives.
