Save the date – REPLACE workshop on 8 April 2022
REPLACE workshop “Towards Renewable Heating & Cooling: Replacement of Inefficient Systems in the Residential Sector”
The REPLACE project partners are pleased to invite you to the event
“Towards Renewable Heating & Cooling: Replacement of Inefficient
Systems in the Residential Sector” to present the key findings of the
project and discuss the framework conditions for replacement, exchanging
old conventional fossil fuel systems with renewable ones. The workshop
will take place online
in the afternoon of the 08th of April 2022
, as part of the international World Sustainable Energy Days (WSED)
This event is an excellent opportunity to learn how the phase-out of
fossil-based heating systems can be brought forward in the European
agenda and to find out more about modern renewable technologies. The
event will also provide the chance to engage with key policymakers,
industry and end-users representatives on the potential and challenges
of renewable H&C solutions in buildings. We invite you for
discussions on how renewable energy at home can contribute to Europe’s
energy transition, while empowering consumers in their energy choices.

Lunch at SocialRES: the webinar series about energy democracy and social innovation!
SocialRES: webinar series about energy democracy
Energy is a part of everyone’s lives. The SocialRES project is organising a series of webinars on energy democracy
. Also called, Lunch at SocialRES
the aim of these social talks is to raise people’s awareness about the
concepts related to renewable energy, its role in achieving energy
democracy, energy transition, and building energy communities. “Today we
can make a difference. We can be the spark that starts one of the most
fundamental social, economic and technical changes of our times towards
the clean energy transition,” says SocialRES project coordinator Silvia
