The role of electricity in the Heating and Cooling Strategy
The Copper Alliance presented the IndustRE project in an event (15 July 2015) dedicated to discuss the role of electricity in the Heating and Cooling Strategy, which is the contribution from heating and cooling efficiency in realising the EU's energy and climate objectives within the Energy Union Package.
The presentation focused on the Industry sector and provided input on how heating and cooling processes can be linked with the electricity system. During the event, the IndustRE project was pointed out as a mean to investigate the available possibilities of Demand Side Management in order to assess how the electricity system can cope with an increased demand from industry (when switching from fuels to electricity).
Participants in the event included representatives from the DG Energy C3 Energy Efficiency and of the heat pump sector (EHPA), cogeneration (Cogen Europe), building performance (BPIE, E2BA), heating sector (EHIA) and country representatives of France and the Netherlands.
