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.
ISH is a trade fair focusing on the responsible management of water and energy in buildings.It is the largest in the sector andtakes place over five days every two years at MesseFrankfurt inGermany.
The last in-person edition in 2019 sawmore than 199,000 visitors and over 2,500 exhibitors. In 2021, the show was hosted online due to the COVID pandemic. This year, ISH will open its physical doors once again to welcome international experts and enthusiasts of the sector between 13 and 17 March. In addition to the in-person trade fair experience, ISH 2023 will also offer a digital extension, an online version of the fair, between 13 and 24 March.
