About the Working Group

The Working Group Domestic Heating was created in 2012 in order to promote biomass in the domestic heating sector. In the framework of the EU’s long-term decarbonisation strategy, tackling the heating and cooling (H&C) sector is getting more and more attention. Biomass can offer a wide range of sustainable solutions, including in the residential sector. The key topics discussed by the WG include building regulations, air emissions and stoves & boilers certifications. This WG is open to all Bioenergy Europe's members willing to understand and exchange on domestic heating related policies.
