The solar thermal roadmap was officially launched during the

High Level Policy Event on june 20

Heat represents half of the energy consumption in Europe and its decarbonisation plays a strategic role in the response to the two major crises Europe is facing: climate change and energy security. In this regard, Solar Heat Europe organised a High-Level event, dedicated to the topic ‘Heat decarbonisation: a strategic imperative for the EU’. The event gathered different stakeholders, ranging from policymakers to representatives of different industrial sectors.

The event provided a unique space to discuss the intersection between the recently launched REPowerEU plan, the EU Solar Energy Strategy and the ongoing discussions on the Renewable Energy Directive, as well as the need for a swift implementation across the EU when it comes to the decarbonisation of heat.
