About the organizers
The Decarb Heat Initiative is jointly organised by:
The European Heat Pump Association (EHPA) promotes awareness and deployment of heat pump technology in Europe. All activities aim at creating a market environment that facilitates a faster deployment of heat pump technology to unleash its benefits on a European level: efficient heating and cooling using renewable energy. EHPA also coordinates the Heat Pump Keymark – a European certification scheme for all heat pumps, combination heat pumps and hot water heater. For more information, please visit: www.ehpa.org .
Bioenergy Europe (formerly known as AEBIOM) is the common voice of the bioenergy sector aiming to develop a sustainable bioenergy market based on fair business conditions. Bioenergy Europe is a non-profit, Brussels-based international organisation founded in 1990 that brings together around 40 associations and 90 companies, as well as academic and research institutes, from all across Europe. Its key mission can be summarised in five objectives:
- To communicate the opportunities and concerns regarding the development of bioenergy in Europe to EU policy makers;
- To develop, deepen and disseminate knowledge on the use of biomass for energy from scientific, technological, economic, social, legal and political perspectives, as well as in any other aspect relevant at European level;
- To develop and promote all technology developed within the European bioenergy industry;
- To support any national or international initiative promoting bioenergy;
- To actively promote the abolition of any technical or trade barriers which hamper the development of an open bioenergy market at European level.
Euroheat & Power is the international network for district energy, promoting sustainable heating an cooling in Europe and beyond. We are a non-for-profit association headquartered in Brussels, Belgium, which unites the district energy sector. Our members come from over thirty countries around the globe and include national district heating and cooling associations, utilities operating district energy systems, industrial associations and companies, manufacturers, universities, research institutes and consultancies active in the sector. Euroheat & Power believes in the key role of cities and communities for a successful energy transition: there can be no sustainable cities without sustainable district heating and cooling.

It is EPEE’s mission to promote a better understanding of the HVACR sector in the EU and to contribute to the development of effective European policies in order to achieve a long-term sustainability agenda.
Our association is driven by its members who are involved in every step of the process and whose views are sought on each document we submit to decision-makers in Brussels and further afield.
COGEN Europe is the European association representing the cogeneration sector. Our aim is to promote the benefits and wider use of cogeneration in the EU and wider Europe. We work with EU institutions, member states and other stakeholders to develop sustainable energy policies that enable the increased use of efficiently produced and affordable electricity and heat through cogeneration.
