EHPA position on industrial heat pumps
More than half of all energy is used for producing heat. A big part of this can be provided efficiently by heat pump solutions in residential and commercial buildings, industry and district heating contributing to a carbon neutral Europe.
In industry, heat represents more than 60% of energy use. Industrial heat pumps can help decarbonise low temperature heat supply within industries by using renewable energy and waste heat recovery. With today’s technology, industrial heat pumps can provide about 10% of total final energy demand of industry (approx.. 2000 TWh) and hence are a significant contributor to Europe’s energy and climate targets. This should be recognized in the renewable energy directive and in energy statistics and this potential for industrial applications and district heating needs to be developed faster.
