This study, commissioned by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) provides an analysis of the drivers of growth and costs in selected European markets.

It builds upon a previous report by Eunomia completed in 2014 entitled ‘European Experience of Renewable Heat Deployment’. This provided information on the long-term deployment patterns of some of the key Renewable Heat Technologies (RHTs). It also described the relevant policies in some of the more developed markets in other European countries, including Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland.

The principal elements of  the study include:

  • An explanation of how growth in RHTs has changed over time within the selected countries
  • Data related to the changes in costs of RHTs
  • Future scenarios of deployment of RHTs
  • Literature review of the data available on biomass boiler efficiencies in Europe
