Webinar: Cooling down Europe’s heating system

SAVE THE DATE – June 30, 09:00 – 10:30

The Coolproducts campaign is happy to announce its participation in this year’s Sustainable Energy Week – an initiative by the European Commission to foster cooperation amongst policy experts in Brussels and member states.

This webinar will address the challenges relating to the decarbonisation of domestic heating, which is responsible for almost half of the EU’s energy consumption and a third of its CO2 emissions. The speakers will discuss how the Ecodesign Directive and Energy Labelling Regulation can help accelerate this process by phasing out polluting appliances such as gas boilers.
