Codema Supports Cities Manifesto for Fossil-Free Heating and Cooling
27th May, 2021
Through our involvement in the Celsius Forerunner Groups, we were delighted to support EuroHeat and Power and other stakeholders in developing the Cities Manifesto for Fossil-Free Heating and Cooling.
In mid-July, the EU will issue key proposals to address heat decarbonisation – the so-called “Fit for 55” package. It is a critical moment, as this legislative package will determine the direction of heating and cooling policies in the EU for decades to come. Moreover, it will be essential in keeping the bar high on energy and climate action, and in pushing a systemic shift to rethink the heat sector: with cities at the epicentre of this shift, using the right mix of solutions including renewables, circularity (e.g. waste heat) and infrastructure (such as district heating and cooling networks).
To ensure that cities’ needs and leadership role are taken on board in this pivotal moment for the future of heating and cooling, Codema was proud to part of a group of organisations including Celsius Cities, #DHCities, Energy Cities and FEDARENE, which have come together to endorse the Cities Manifesto for Fossil-Free Heating and Cooling, with more than 20 cities across Europe having joined already.
