European Solar Days Expect more than Half a Million Participants

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on May 4, 2012

 European Solar Days Grassroots campaign drums up enthusiasm for clean energy: From Tuesday, 1 May, to Sunday, 13 May, hundreds of thousands of European citizens are gathering at locations all across the continent to show their interest in solar energy during the European Solar Days (ESD). At hundreds of events, the ESD will demonstrate to audiences, such as policy makers and companies - but particularly to individual citizens - the benefits of using solar energy to generate heat and electricity. The nearly two-week campaign includes showcasing solar thermal and solar PV technologies, trainings for company staff, doors open days, street events for children, balloon release and many more.

Europe: SDHplus Gathers Experts and Newcomers to Solar District Heating

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on April 5, 2012

 SDH Logo Just after the Intelligent Energy Europe (IEE) project SDHtake-off will have ended in June 2012, there will be a follow-up project called SDHplus. Six new countries will join it: Spain, France, Lithuania, Croatia, Poland and Slovenia. Experienced partners from the former SDHtake-off project will help them promote solar district heating by launching awareness-raising campaigns and assessing the potential of their heat supply network. SDHplus comes with a budget of EUR 1.8 million from the IEE fund and will run over three years.

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on October 18, 2010

This short presentation explains the SO-PRO Project which is being coordinated by the Energy Agency of Upper Austria (O.Ö. Energiesparverband).

The project, financed by Intelligent Energy Europe, will put in place market development activities (training, developing guidelines, information for industrial decision makers, etc) in six European regions, aimed at boosting solar process heat.

A Common Framework for a Coordinated/Harmonised Policy on Renewable Heating (2010)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on September 23, 2010

The present document was prepared in the framework of the RES-H Policy project (Policy development for improving RES-H/C penetration in European Member States).

The RES-H Policy project, supported by the European Commission through the IEE programme, has the objective of supporting EU Member States (Austria, Greece, Lithuania, The Netherlands, Poland and UK) in the implementation of the so-called RES 2020 Directive (2009/28/EC).

Best Practice Policies to Develop Renewable Heat Markets (2004)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on September 17, 2010

This document is one the deliverables of the REACT Project (renewable energy in action). The project aimed at developing innovative, nationally adapted policies and programs for a faster and more cost effective market introduction of renewable energies.

The report goes through the main RES technologies used for heating: solar thermal, biomass, geothermal and environmental heat. In 2002, biomass was the RES technology used for heating with higher penetration rate in the EU 15 (42%).
