Open Consultation on the Smart Cities and Communities initiative: input needed from the Renewable Heating &Cooling sector!
Brussels, 22 April 2011 - The European Commission recently launched a consultation on the "Smart Cities and Communities" initiative. The consultation, which is available on the website of the Directorate General for Energy, seeks the opinion from all relevant stakeholders. Its purpose is to establish a European vision for the Smart Cities and Communities
initiative, to receive feedback and additional ideas on this proposal.
The input should be given by means of an online questionnaire and it gives the opportunity to all interested parties to express their views in the preparation stage of the initiative. The Secretariat of the RHC-Platform is certainly going to participate in this consultation, however we encourage all European industry and research stakeholders from the renewable heating and cooling sector to respond individually and include any comments you think are appropriate.
Renewable energy solutions for heating and cooling should be part of each single project supported by the European Commission under the Smart Cities initiative, taking into account local resources. This was the key message emerged from the event by the RHC-Platform on the 9 February 2011 in Brussels. The RHC-Platforms dedicates one specific session of its upcoming Annual Conference to further discussing the role of renewable heating and cooling technologies in EU cities.
To participate in the Smart Cities and Communities consultation, please follow the guidelines on the European Commission website, the process is very simple. Should you have questions please do not hesitate to get back to us. The consultation is open until the 13 May 2011. For your convenience we attach the consultation document available for download on the European Commission website http://ec.europa.eu/energy/technology/consultations/20110513_smart_cities_en.htm

About the European Technology Platform on Renewable Heating and Cooling
*The European Technology Platform on Renewable Heating & Cooling (RHC-Platform) brings together industry, research and policy stakeholders to define and implement a common strategy for increasing the use of renewable energy technologies in heating and cooling.
Building on the work of the European Solar Thermal Technology Platform (ESTTP, in existence from 2005-2008), four major European organisations - EUREC Agency, AEBIOM, EGEC and ESTIF - through the Secretariat of the RHC-Platform are spearheading the development of a common Vision and a Strategic Research Agenda for the renewable heating and cooling sector in Europe.
The RHC-Platform, officially endorsed by the European Commission since October 2008, is playing a decisive role in maximising synergies and strengthening efforts towards research, development and technological innovation which will consolidate Europe's leading position in the sector.
About European Technology Platforms
European Technology Platforms represent a framework for stakeholders, led by industry, to define research and development priorities, timeframes and action plans on a number of strategically important issues. They also play a
key role in ensuring an adequate focus of research funding on areas with a high degree of industrial relevance, by covering the whole economic value chain and by mobilising public authorities at national and regional levels.
