Belgium-Brussels: Overview of Heating and Cooling: Perceptions, Markets and Regulatory Frameworks for Decarbonisation
Section I: Contracting authority
Section II: Object
Overview of Heating and Cooling: Perceptions, Markets and Regulatory Frameworks for Decarbonisation
The analysis will focus on identifying the regulatory, economic and cultural conditions characterising the H&C sector with a particular attention on district heating and heat pumps. Scenarios will be developed for most cost-effective decarbonisation of H&C in Member States of EU28, Norway, Switzerland and Iceland, and an aggregated description at the EU level will be provided. These scenarios will build on currently existing useful energy demand, technologies and resources. Attitudes of European citizens towards district H&C will be assessed and the factors that govern the dissemination of efficient and renewable technologies will be examined, with reference to regulatory, fiscal and socio-economic conditions. The aim of the work will be to identify the elements of an optimal system transition to net-zero emission society with minimal negative spill-overs, while making use of maximum engagement of the H&C sector.
Task 1: A meta-study on research and policy that note the critical elements of decarbonizing H&C from European (and, where relevant, non-European) sources.
Task 2: Conduct a representative qualitative analysis assessing the perception and image of H&C by current district heating and heat pump clients and non-clients from industrial, residential and public sectors in individual Member States of EU28, Norway, Switzerland and Iceland, and provide an aggregated description at the EU level.
Task 3: Gather information and assess in detail the momentary and non-monetary incentives (including an overview of regulatory, fiscal and socio-economic conditions) of expanding the high-efficiency and renewable H&C technology market in individual Member States of EU28, Norway, Switzerland and Iceland, and provide an aggregated description at the EU level.
Task 4: Present the components of the cost for district H&C and heat pump users, including the final capital cost and final operating cost for different types of consumers in individual Member States of EU28, Norway, Switzerland and Iceland, illustrating this with cost calculations for different types of European end-users.
Task 5: Provide recommendations for cross-border trade of EEOSs and for a new harmonised white certificate scheme.
Task 6: Presentation of the work and deliverables to Member States and stakeholders.
