HARP will be present at the European Sustainable Energy Week, a series of activities that explore how to build a secure energy future for Europe and spread awareness of how to use energy more sustainably, build a low-carbon economy based on renewables and have a united approach to sustainable energy use. Launched in 2006 by the European Commission, the month-long event is organised by the European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency, in cooperation with the Directorate-General for Energy.
The European Sustainable Energy Week will be an opportunity to present the HARP project to a broad audience and reach out to national and local public authorities, industry associations, NGOs, R&D institutions and consumer organisations. HARP’s participation will take the format of an ‘Energy Talk’, which will consist of a 10-minute online presentation followed by a 10-minute Q&A session with the public.
During the first part of the talk, we will give an overview of how efficient the heating systems installed in Europe are, followed by a brief presentation about the HARP Online tool as well as the first project outcomes. Finally, we will also inform the participants about the next steps of the project and how countries that are not yet involved can join the project in order to use the HARP tool and promote efficient heating. Afterwards, during the Q&A session, the audience will be able to ask questions to develop upon the points mentioned during the first part of the talk.
The European Sustainable Energy Week will be taking place from 25 to 29 October, and the HARP project session is on Wednesday 27 October, from 10:30 to 11:00.
