The Heating Sub-working Group (or the Europe China Heating Initiative (ECHI)) seeks to promote European technologies that provide eco-friendly and sustainable heating appliances and components. The goal is to ensure that energy resources are conserved, while air quality is improved by significantly decreasing pollutant emissions. The 'coal-to-gas' (CTG) transition programme is one of China’s national strategies to fundamentally reduce particulate matter and nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions, as well as to achieve increased energy efficiency. European heating manufacturers can make significant contributions to the successful implementation of the CTG strategy while helping China to realise its carbon neutrality goals. The recommendations in this Position Paper aim to provide Chinese stakeholders with valuable industry insights and experience to improve the regulatory environment of the heating industry in China and benefit the Chinesepopulation.

The ECHI was created in 2002. It currently consists of 12 European enterprises involved in the manufacturing of highly efficient and renewable-based heating technologies and heating components. They manufacture heating appliances (such as highefficiency heating boilers), burners, water heaters, renewables (such as solar and heat pumps) and industrial components. In 2016, the Heating Working Group became a sub-working group of the Construction Working Group. Together with its parent group, it strives to promote advanced European heating technology and offers information on the latest trends and developments in the heating industry.
