We are pleased to invite you to the Cool Heating Coalition’s next webinar on 10 July (11:00-12:30 CEST) to discuss geothermal district heating’s untapped potential for decarbonising the European heating and cooling (H&C) market.

Our speakers:

Keynote from Sigrid Friis Fredriksen, MEP, Danish Social Liberal Party


Morgan Henley, Campaigner on District Heating, CEE Bankwatch

Malte Nyenhuis, Head of EU Affairs, Innargi

Johannes Imminger, Head of EU Office, Wiener Stadtwerke

Michał Dziennik, Representative of the Management Board for the Development of the Heating System, Veolia

Moderator: Tom Vasseur, Policy Officer, Cool Heating Coalition

The recent non-paper signed by 15 Member States recognises the major potential for climate, just transition and energy security and calls on the next Commission to make the clean heating and cooling transition, including explicit reference to geothermal and district heating, an EU priority for the next term.

As you might know, the European Parliament adopted an own-initiative report (INI) on geothermal energy earlier this year acknowledging the large potential for the heating and cooling transition. The Committee of the Regions published a similar call soon after.

The upcoming Hungarian Presidency will also put geothermal energy on the agenda to foster discussions on creating a level playing field with other renewables.

Building on this strong momentum while starting into the next 5-year EU mandate, the Cool Heating Coalition will bring together distinguished experts from industry, civil society and politics to discuss how geothermal district heating will contribute to the clean H&C transition, share best practices and engage with the audience in a webinar on 10 July.
