RES4BUILD partners Stichting Joint Implementation Network (JIN) took part in the Sustainable Places 2020 workshop on Renewable Heating and Cooling Solutions for Buildings and Industry. The workshop brought together a selection of Horizon 2020 funded projects involving experts from the biomass, geothermal, solar thermal and heat pump sectors to discuss a common strategy for increasing the use of renewable energy technologies for heating and cooling for buildings and industry.
Eise Spijker discussed his work in the RES4BUILD project. As Work Package 4 lead, JIN led an assessment of Integrated Energy Systems good practices (in Poland and the Netherlands), in collaboration with the Baltic Energy Conservation Agency (BAPE). The adoption of innovative energy solutions requires consideration of social, economic and financial aspects, so the co-design of integrated systems is an important aspect of the RES4BUILD project, which aims to decarbonise energy consumption in buildings by developing integrated renewable energy-based solutions that are tailored to the needs and requirements of users and installers.
“To make the EU Renovation Wave a reality, Integrated Energy Systems for the built environment need to provide turn-key integrated technology solutions, offer innovative financial products, and apply robust end-user engagement practices.”
The workshop also included participants from the BE Horizons group, SWS Heating, SolBio-Rev, TriHP and HybridBioVGE.

A report on IES good practices by JIN and BAPE will be available soon. Please keep an eye on the project news page for updates: https://res4build.eu/news-events/
