For the first time, the association of the European Heating Industry (EHI) held its annual General Assembly in an online virtual format. The session took place on 9 October 2020.

Participants reflected upon the increasing recognition on the part of EU policymakers of the importance of accelerating the decarbonisation of buildings. In response, EHI has re-doubled its effort to communicate on an EU level, beginning with the launch of its roadmap strategy towards carbon-neutral buildings by 2050.
