The renewable energy directive is being currently revised. Discussion arise around the new proposed yearly percentage point increase target in renewable heating & cooling (article 23) and the role of “waste energy”.
EHPA reiterates that “waste energy” and “renewable energy” need to be equally treated BUT are NOT the same. Consequently, we have joined the industry call to policy makers stating that ONLY renewable heating and cooling solutions (including heat pumps) should be accounted for under article 23.
