I love it when a plan comes together! Having spent previous years laying the groundwork for success, we started to rack up some major victories in 2017. On a range of EU legislative files from ETS to Renewables and the Energy Performance of Buildings, district heating has been given the fair treatment it deserves in the light of its potential contribution to the EU’s climate and energy ambitions. On a national note, we were finally able to secure the agreement of the Commission on Germany’s support scheme for CHP and DHC. It’s great to see that hard work and strong arguments can really pay off! These successes are all the more satisfying for the fact that we achieved them together, as an organisation and as a community. This is the true essence and purpose of Euroheat; bringing us all together to that we can become more than the sum of our parts. It’s an honour and privilege to serve as President during this exciting and eventful period. Let’s see how much further we can go in 2018!
