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 HPCY was launched in 2011 to put the spotlight on cities and regions who have put in place an energy efficient project including a heat pump. The international appeal of the award has grown year after year so that it now attracts participants from all over Europe. Until now, we received more than 155 applications from all around Europe and awarded 20 existing solutions, which, if replicated, could lead the path to a full decarbonisation of the heating and cooling sector in Europe.
This webinar aims at presenting the 4 winning projects of the HPCY Award 2019 edition. This year we received 22 applications from 15 countries, including projects from single residential, commercial and industrial buildings. Our jury awarded 1 project for each of the 4 categories: DecarBuilding, DecarbIndustry, Next Generation Heat Pump, and the main category Heat Pump City of the Year. The main criteria of the award were 1. High level of innovation, 2. Integration with other renewable technologies and 3. CO₂ and cost reductions.
Heat Pump City of The Year: “BEST7 in EU-GUGLE“ in Tampere (Finland) by Mr Janne Heinonen (CEO of ENERMIX OY)This project consists of a multi-apartment building in which heat pumps use PV electricity and green electricity from the grid (hydropower), and the excessive heat is delivered directly to the district heating network.
DecarbIndustry: “New Dairy Bergen” in Bergen (Norway), by Mr Richard Horntvedt (Commercial partner of Hybrid Energy)This project represents the first dairy in Norway entirely supplied by heat pumps.
Next Generation Heat Pump: “PHAC-system” in Achtmaal (The Netherlands) by Mr Jochem van Haaren (Owner of NRGTEQ BV)The project represents the concept of “active cooling and passive heating” by using PVT panels, heat pumps and thermal storage, both for commercial and residential buildings and industrial processes.
DecarBuilding: “Turnova in Turnhout” in Turnhout (Belgium), by Nejc Brelih-Wasowski (Knowledge manager Boydens engineering)The project developed in the city of Turnhout (Belgium). The buildings of the city center are connected via aquifer thermal energy storage (ATES) – with thermal loop system and water-water heat pump.
