Abstract

The objective of this report is to assess the potential contribution of Power-to-Heat/Cool applications (PtH/C) to the flexibility in the European electricity system until 2030. The heating and cooling sector accounts for the majority of final energy consumption in the European Union and therefore will play a central role in achieving policy goals concerning climate change mitigations. Electrification
of the heating and cooling sector may be an appropriate pathway for decarbonisation of this sector, while at the same time proving additional flexibility to the electricity system.
