SunHorizon will participate at the Sustainable Places 2022, held as an hybrid event from 6th September to 9th September 2022. Nice, France is hosting the in-person sessions.
Sustainability targets and climate change objectives cannot be met without addressing buildings and the built environment at the building, district and urban scale to include our transport and energy infrastructures. Renowned for showcasing results coming out of the EU Horizon 2020 Framework Programme via the participation of cutting-edge research and innovation projects, the scope of Sustainable Places is captured directly in its name. It involves designing, building and retrofitting the places we live and work in a more sustainable way.
SunHorizon will be part of the hybrid workshop “RHC Solutions for Buildings and Industry – 3rd Edition” from 8:30 to 11:45 on Wednesday, 7th September.
Renewable energy technologies for heating and cooling are safe, clean, efficient and increasingly cost-competitive. In its vision 2050 prospective document, the European Technology and Innovation Platform on Renewable Heating and Cooling – RHC ETIP – envisions that 100% renewable energy-based heating and cooling (100% RHC) in Europe is possible by 2050.
This workshop is a continuation of the two previous RHC for Buildings and Industry Workshop at SP2020 and SP2021. The topic brought together a selection of H2020 EU-funded projects, involving experts from the biomass, geothermal, solar thermal, and heat pump sectors. It aims to discuss a common strategy to increase the use of renewable energy technologies for heating and cooling for buildings and industry.
The event invites projects to pitch their progress and achievements to date. Interactive discussion slots will allow for opportunities to identify possible synergies, cooperation on horizontal issues, or potential joint dissemination activities to maximize expected impacts.
