Project Description


The RES H/C SPREAD project developed six regional plans in the field of heating and cooling renewable energies. The project involved six pilot regions pertaining to as many European countries, representing the EU main climatic zones, with a prevalence of the Mediterranean nations.

*This project received funding from the European Union’s Intelligent Energy Europe programme 

The planning exercise aimed at setting harmonized and standard baselines to better allow the developers to set their targets and policies. These baselines provided robust and detailed maps of the RES H/C supply and demand potentialities as well as an in-depth analysis of the local action plans (like the SEAPs) developed in the reference territories. In each region, Country Governance Committees were constituted to support the plan’s implementation and to help reach consensus on the proposed policies among regional authorities, key stakeholders and citizen representatives.
