Webinar: Renewable Thermal Policy: Challenges & Opportunities

Posted on Posted in Upcoming Events

Thermal energy, energy used for industrial processes and to heat and cool buildings, is a significant contributor to global energy demand and to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. While policy solutions have been implemented for decades to expand the development and deployment of renewable electricity, low-carbon renewable thermal technologies have not benefitted from such widespread policy […]

Low-Carbon Renewable Thermal Technology Solutions: Policies to Support Development and Deployment

Posted on Posted in Blog Posts

Earlier this week, the Renewable Thermal Collaborative (RTC) released a new report, Low-Carbon Renewable Thermal Technology Solutions: Policies to Support Development and Deployment. The report reviews the leading policies that support the deployment of low-carbon renewable thermal technologies in Europe and at the state and federal levels in the U.S., as well as U.S. federal […]

Report in Brief: Electrifying U.S. Industry: A Technology- and Process-Based Approach to Decarbonization

Posted on Posted in Fact Sheets

Thermal energy needs in industry, especially for heat, are a significant challenge for climate change mitigation efforts. Heat represents two thirds of all energy demand in the industrial sector, and one fifth of energy demand across the globe. However, only ten percent of this demand is met using renewable energy. In the United States, due […]

Report In Brief: Low-Carbon Renewable Thermal Technology Solutions: Policies to Support Development and Deployment

Posted on Posted in Fact Sheets

While policy solutions have been implemented for decades to expand the development of and access to renewable electricity, low-carbon renewable thermal technologies in particular, and low-carbon technologies for industry in general, have not benefitted from such widespread policy support. In order to be effective, any framework to reduce GHG emissions must address thermal energy. In […]
