EP Plenary adopts F-gas revision: heat pump industry ready to go forward!

Mar. 12, 2014 | The European Parliament voted with a large majority (644 in favour, 19 against, 16 abstentions) in favour of the F-gas text and follows as such its Environment Committee

The European Parliament cleared the way for finalising the F-gas file by adopting the
consolidated text in today’s plenary session. As such it is very likely that the Regulation will be published before summer.
Such a quick finalisation is favourable to the heat pump industry as it creates a clear framework to go forward, a.o. with regards to research and development as well as investment decisions.

The European Heat Pump Association (EHPA) strongly believes that the members of the European Parliament’s plenary have taken the right decision in adopting the consolidated F-gas text with a large majority. This only leaves the Council to formally endorse the Regulation before the text can go into translation and publication
