Section I: Contracting authority

Section II: Object
Renewable Space Heating under the Revised Renewable Energy Directive
The subject matter of the contract is the assessment of heat consumption in buildings (space heating and the supply of sanitary hot water), the comparative examination of heat decarbonisation scenarios through renewable energy sources and other heat decarbonisation options and the recommendation of a set of pathways and options with a view to provide adaptable heat decarbonisation pathways and options for various European geographies.
The tasks will be performed on the contractor's premises. Meetings between the contractor and the Commission will be held on Commission premises in Brussels.
− establish current consumption for space heating in buildings (residential, tertiary, industrial),
− overview space heating and renewable space heating technologies,
− establish costs of heating by fossils (current mainstream fossil heating technologies), by renewable space heating technologies, by e-fuels and H2 and by electricity covering LCOH, lifecycle costs and primary energy efficiency,
− describe the space heat sector in the individual EU Member States, and provide a comparative summary of the EU space heat sector,
− establish a baseline (data series) for modelling of heat supply as a basis of comparative analysis of space heating and its supply options (baseline),
− model scenarios for space heating decarbonisation via renewable heating sources (geothermal, solar thermal, biomass, ambient energy) establishing their costs, investment needs, primary energy use, and their benefits in terms of GHG reduction and energy savings; establish the cost-effective balance between thermal insulation and renewable supply,
− model scenarios for heat supply decarbonisation via e-fuels (gaseous and liquids), H2, electrification establishing their costs, investment needs, primary energy use, and their benefits in terms of GHG reduction and energy savings,
− model scenarios for heat decarbonisation options with district heating as an enabling instrument to deliver renewable energy sources and other decarbonised heat supply options for heating (waste heat and renewable electricity), establish their costs, including infrastructure costs, investment needs (in infrastructure and generation), primary and final energy use, and their benefits in terms of GHG reduction and energy savings,
− compare scenarios for renewable heat supply options with baseline and with alternative scenarios of heat supply decarbonisation in buildings, including via increased insulation, e-fuels (gaseous and liquids), H2, electrification; compare district heating expansion scenarios with the baseline and the heat decarbonisation scenarios (renewables and other), which leave district heating share unchanged compared to baseline,
− define feasibility conditions for deploying renewable and decarbonised heating supply in buildings covering changes in heating equipment (technical building systems for heating), changes in building shell; changes in decarbonised fuel/sources supply chains; energy infrastructures (electricity, gas, alternative fuels, district heating) and facilitating regulatory framework relating to the supply chain of heating fuels/energy sources, building regulations; supply chain of equipment, (urban/municipal), spacial planning and other urban/municipality regulation,
− define regulatory conditions for energy communities for renewable heat,
− organise stakeholder consultation work-shops,
− present the work, the deliverables and results in meetings, including with Member States and in regional renewable energy cooperation fora.
