This is good news for the energy transition as more heat pumps means greener and smarter energy, less emissions and a cleaner air! Looking at all existing thermal solutions, the share of heat pumps still remains modest in Europe but is growing at an increasing speed.

Benefits of 10 million installed heat pumps in 2017 contributed to:

333 GW - storage capacity

165 TWh - heat produced

106 TWh - renewable energy

59.3 TWh - electricity used

27.1 Mt - CO2 saved

135 TWh - energy saved

Ahead of a huge ’10 million heat pump party’ event organised by EHPA in Brussels, Thomas Nowak, Secretary general, said “Today we celebrate what we have accomplished so far. But tomorrow more heat pumps will be needed. The new energy system will require further integration of technologies and sectors and we need policy-makers to facilitate this change.This is to be continued in 2018.”
