Heating & cooling coming from renewable energy sources is steadily increasing according to an article published for the EU Industry Days. In 2020 renewables accounted for 23% of the total energy used for this sector in the EU, which shows a steady increase in comparison to 12% in 2004 and 22% in 2019. Among the mentioned key developments mentioned to accelerate this growth is the electrification process of heating by using heat pumps.
