    50% of final energy demand in the EU-28 is used for heating and cooling (H/C). Thus, a growing focus of climate policies is put on this sector. While national and EU policies are essential, also local initiatives and instruments are required. Thus, the key question of our paper is: Which policies are needed on the national and local level to drive heating and cooling towards decarbonisation? We analysed this question for six selected countries and local case studies within these countries. The paper covers the whole heating and cooling sector, i.e. space heating and hot water preparation in buildings, process heating in industry and district heating and electricity generation. The paper is based on the Horizon 2020 project progRESsHEAT (www.progressheat.eu).
