The European Cogeneration Review – Germany is the third in a series of country reports that COGEN Europe will issue over the coming 12 months on cogeneration in Europe. The ECR covers the latest developments in the cogeneration sector, looking at market potentials and policy implications.
COGEN Europe takes note of the issuing by the European Commission of the 'Summer Package' of next steps in the Energy Union and calls for clearer links to be made between power and heating & cooling.
In the new Energy Union, the European Commission encourages member states to give energy efficiency primary consideration in their energy policies. The Commission stresses that EU energy policy must establish synergies between energy efficiency policies, resource efficiency policies and market design, and it will seek to enshrine these principles in its upcoming European Heating and Cooling Strategy. COGEN Europe and its members believe the following eight points must be included in the scope of the Strategy if it is to be a success.
This year COGEN Europe was involved in three events (on 17 and 18 June) at the EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) High-Level Policy Conference in Brussels. See our Storify and Photo Story here!
