Event Summary:

IPFA Continental Europe

Hot Topics: A Benelux Derby for Sustainable Heating Projects

Approximately half of all energy consumed in the EU is used for heating and cooling. With the EU targeting carbon neutrality for all heating and cooling by 2050, transitioning from natural gas to sustainable solutions is urgent.

In order to facilitate and accelerate the heating transition, policy-makers will need to tap on private investment. However, district heating projects tend to be complex and difficult to scale. What can be done to help overcome these challenges? 

This event brings together experts from the Netherlands and Belgium in a 'district heating derby,' sharing insights and strategies to involve private investors in advancing the Benelux region's heating market toward the 2050 goals.

Don't miss this opportunity to explore innovative solutions and investment opportunities in the quest for a sustainable heating future.
