How would heating and cooling sector contribute to EU 2030 decarbonisation goal – NECPs measures

To provide a starting point for exchanging best practices, the Secretariat launched a discussion paper outlining the objectives and measures defined in NECPS of selected EU Member States. This report assesses the NECPs of seven EU Member States with different outlooks of heating and cooling sectors: Denmark, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Poland and Sweden. It provides insights into the stages of the development of the heating and cooling and the district heating sectors, as well as targets and measures for the development of the sectors in the period from 2020 to 2030. The focus is placed on measures for deployment of renewable energy in the respective sectors, providing information on possible regulatory and financial solutions for the integration of renewable energy in the heating and cooling sector.
