It has become obvious that a number of countries have used different methods and approaches to promote the use of renewable energy technologies for heating and cooling. Some countries have chosen to focus on deployment of REHC in the institutional, commercial and industrial sectors whilst others have been increasingly successful in deploying REHC in the residential sector. Following on the recommendations of previous RETD work, this focuses on the critical success factors for developing policies in support of increased deployment of REHC in the residential sector. The findings will be discussed with policy makers, regional and local decision makers, utilities and energy retailers with the aim of furthering the deployment of REHC in the residential sector by means of international co-operation and ongoing dialogue.
