A heat pump is a device that can provide heating, cooling and hot water for residential, commercial and industrial use. Despite the name, all heat pumps can provide both heating and cooling. They work well in nearly all types of climate.
EHPA aims for quality. Together with its member it tries to show both the end-consumers and policy makers that heat pumps are quality products that are very energy efficient and are using the available renewable energy sources as much as possible.
EHPA is the voice of the heat pump sector in the European Union and advocates for a faster deployment of heat pumps. We want EU laws that enable heat pumps to become the number one heating and cooling solution in Europe. Everyone, everywhere should have access to sustainable, affordable heating.
EHPA members meet at the annual general assembly.
EHPA organises the annual conference Heat Pump Forum, and several heat pump related events every year.
EHPA co-organises and supports the European Heat Pump Summit in Nuremberg.
EHPA is present at major trade fairs in Europe.
The European Heat Pump Association (EHPA) is pleased to invite you to the first of a series of online webinars, dedicated to presenting the best practices from the Heat Pump City of the Year award(HPCY) and EU projects that promote innovative solutions for the decarbonisation of the heating and cooling sector in Europe.
The HPCY, launched in 2011, is a project of EHPA that rewards every year the best solutions in decarbonising the building and the industrial sector, the most innovative heat pump solution and the most active city. Until now, the project received more than 100 applications from all around Europe and awarded 15 best examples.
The first webinar will showcase three winning projects that participated over the years in a category of the HPCY awards and developed smart solutions for apartments, social houses and public buildings. The three projects use heat pumps in combination with other renewable technologies, to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions and increase thermal comfort.
During the webinar, you will also have a chance to get to know the Heat4Cool project, an EU H2020 funded project which is implementing a combination of six technologies in four different European climates, in three residential buildings (Poland, Spain, Bulgaria) and a district heating application in Budapest, Hungary.
The series of webinars aim to raise awareness on existing solutions which if replicated, could result in fully decarbonizing the heating and cooling sector in Europe.
