W4RES Survey on users needs and perceptions regarding RHC uptake and the role of women in the sector

Deadline to submit the survey extended until 12 March 2021.

In February 2021, we launched a survey on users needs and perceptions regarding RHC uptake and the role of women in the sector. Your participation will help us to understand the factors impeding or favouring the uptake of renewable energy in heating and cooling in your country and identify the needs, perceptions and challenges of market actors as well as the role of women in the sector.

We already have a good number of answers but we would like to know more about your views, and we specially encourage participants from Belgium, Norway, and Denmark.

Take the 5 minutes survey here! By 12 March 2021. 

If you wish, you can also change the language of the survey at the beginning, or directly take the survey in one of these languages:

Dutch · Italian · German · Bulgarian · Danish · Greek · Slovak · French

W4RES – “Scaling up the involvement of women in supporting and accelerating market uptake of renewable energy sources for heating and cooling” is a 3-year project funded by the European Union within the framework of the H2020 Research and Innovation programme.

W4RES project aims to scale-up the involvement of women in the market deployment and uptake of Renewable Heating and Cooling (RHC) solutions via replicable support measures tested and validated across 8 European countries: Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Italy, Norway, Slovakia. The basic project concept stems from the recognition that women hold great promise as agents of change, helping us progress faster towards our climate and energy targets for 2030.
