COGEN Europe Annual Conference 2016

Last February, the European Commission proposed its first Heating and Cooling Strategy. In line with this initiative, the COGEN Europe Annual Conference 2016 will assemble from 22 to 23 March in Brussels the main players in the cogeneration's sector to discuss and debate the major legislative questions of the moment and to present the sector contribution to moving Europe forward.

Conference sessions will be dedicated to: 

  • Delivering change: CHP’s contribution to achieving EU energy policy objectives for 2030;
  • Regulatory framework: The evolving regulatory framework of network codes, Emissions Trading, electricity market design;
  • National market updates: Annual snap shot survey on the business climate for cogeneration in Europe plus an update on the Italian market;
  • Case Studies: Large-scale CHP, District Heating, Micro-CHP showing the wealth of economic activity supported by cogeneration;
  • Circular Economy: how will waste to energy  impact the role of cogeneration in Europe.


COGEN Europe’s Annual Conference brings together leading EU policymakers, industry representatives and influential thinkers to discuss the challenges facing the energy sector and its contribution to achieving the EU’s climate and energy goals.
