Decarbonisation

Basic information

Heating and cooling are essential to modern life – enabling comfortable indoor environments, industrial processes, mass computation, and global distribution of fresh food and medicine. Yet heating and cooling are heavy energy consumers. The EU will have to move towards fully decarbonised, highly efficient, renewable, integrated, and circular heating and cooling systems and technologies, in order to mitigate climate change and ensure cheap and reliable access to heating and cooling for businesses and households.
