You can check here the video of the session.

On April 7 and 15, the HP4ALL consortium met online for the celebration of the steering committee to review the project progress in the eighth month since it kicked off.

During these two days, advancements on the heat pumps barriers and skills analysis were presented, as well as the progress on the surveys and questionnaires to training providers and end-users.

A brainstorming exercise was carried out to discuss the best approach to boost the heat pumps skills demand depending on the different pilot regions’ needs (Austria, Ireland, and Spain).

Likewise, the HP4ALL model replication around Europe was also addressed and will be part of a webinar session to be held on June 9 as part of the EU Green Week.

Finally, the most important actions in terms of communication were presented and the agenda for the coming months was showcased.
