"This report analyses, and where possible quantifies, the potential of energy efficiency and district energy as enablers of the decarbonisation of the European heating and cooling sector and the wider energy system, as well as the role of different technologies to improve the efficiency along the energy value chain. Based on this analysis, a roadmap for the decarbonisation of the heating and cooling sector is developed, including projections of investments and necessary development of district energy networks. Lastly, the report describes key milestones on the way to a full heat transition and recommends policy actions to drive the implementation of the roadmap."
