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

The European Biomass Association (AEBIOM) is the common voice of the bioenergy sector with the aim to develop a sustainable bioenergy market based on fair business conditions. AEBIOM’s 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.
