Monitoring the renewable heat sector in the Danube RegionUploaded: 18 of April, 2016

This paper focuses on the development of renewable heating (RES-H) in the countries of the Danube Region (DR). This region includes 9 EU member states and 5 countries outside of the EU, which all are contracting parties to the Energy Community (EnC). Our analysis aims to look at the progress achieved by the DR countries regarding the deployment of renewable heat in the period 2004-2014, and compares the actual RES-H consumption to the values set in the NREAPs (National Renewable Action Plan) for 2014 and 2020 in order to see whether they are on track to reach their targets.
