Gas for Heating and Cooling: Empowering Consumer Choice for Affordable and Efficient Heating and Cooling

On 14 June Massimiliano Salini (EPP), Algirdas Saudargas (EPP) and Flavio Zanonato (S&D), Members of the European Parliament, hosted a workshop-debate on the role played by gas in providing affordable and efficient heating and cooling for tens of millions of EU consumers.

In conjunction with the publication of the European Commission’s Heating & Cooling Strategy and the ongoing discussion at the European Parliament, speakers discussed the potential opportunities offered by the latest gas technologies for heating and cooling. The workshop featured short and specific presentations to leave enough time for discussion and Q&A with participants. Focus was on the energy/cost savings these technologies offer and related emission reductions. Presentations showcased innovation in gas in heating and cooling, including energy efficiency and complementarity with renewables, and in particular the applications’ adaptability to and interoperability with national energy mixes and infrastructures. Attention was paid to consumers, including the existing financial instruments for them to finance retrofitting of boilers for heating homes or other available gas technologies for domestic use.
