DecarbCities is organised by:
European Heat Pump Association (EHPA AISBL)
EHPA promotes awareness and deployment of heat pump technology in Europe. All activities aim at creating a market environment that facilitates a faster deployment of heat pump technology to unleash its benefits on a European level: efficient heating and cooling using renewable energy. EHPA also coordinates the Heat Pump Keymark – a European certification scheme for all heat pumps, combination heat pumps and hot water heater. For more information, please visit: www.ehpa.org .
Representing the Austrian heat pump industry, over 250 companies organize their interests in the association Wärmepumpe Austria. We see ourselves as an inter-company and non-partisan representation of interests along the entire value-added chain. Our members include all well-known manufacturers and distributors of heat pumps, electricity supply companies as well as suppliers and drilling companies.
Our installation partners are the link to the customer, promoting renewable environmental heat and standing for quality and efficiency.
We are an active member of the European Heat Pump Association and represent the Austrian interests in Europe.
Energy Cities is a network of 1,000 local governments in 30 countries. We believe that the energy transition is about more than renewable energy or great technologies: It is about a wise use of resources while strengthening local participation and well-being in a democratic Europe.
Energy Cities wants a radical transformation of the energy systems and policies, giving citizens the power to shape a decentralised and renewable energy future. We trigger a trustful dialogue between citizens, local leaders and EU & national institutions to accelerate the energy transition in Europe.
The City of Vienna, connecting the east and west of Europe along the beautiful Danube river is honoured to be the host to a third edition of the all-important Decarb Cities conference. Vienna is committed to phasing out all fossil fuels by 2040 and currently working on a roadmap to achieve this goal. A fast-growing, buzzing City with a dense building stock, an extensive gas and district heating distribution grid, Vienna offers a lot of lessons to learn for other cities on planning the urban energy transition.
