The Power of Heat


The European Union is embarking on an ambitious transition towards a low-carbon energy system. Decarbonising the power and heating sector will be key for implementing the Paris Agreement. How can we do this if we want to keep the lights on and our homes warm at affordable prices? This question will be at the centre of COGEN Europe’s 2018 Power of Heat Conference. We are gathering industry representatives, policymakers and stakeholders to present their views and solutions for a secure, affordable and climate-friendly energy system.

Our conference will in particular focus on how cogeneration can play an important role in delivering energy savings, reducing CO2 emissions, creating jobs, boosting the competitiveness of European industry and facilitating the uptake of more intermittent renewables. These are all key objectives of the EU Energy Union and are at the heart of the current negotiations on the Clean Energy Package. Cogeneration generates today 15% of the EU’s heat and 10.5% of the EU's electricity. There is potential to increase these numbers and help Europe to achieve its climate goals.

The Power of Heat Conference is the largest annual event for the cogeneration sector in Europe. It is organised by COGEN Europe in Brussels. In 2018, the conference will take place in the Steigenberger Hotel on 5 and 6 June.

Join us for two days of stimulating debate on the future of the energy system and the role of power and heat in Europe!
