The European Heat Pump Association (EHPA) is pleased to invite you to the second edition of the HPCY webinar series. This series is dedicated to presenting best practices from the Heat Pump City of the Year award (HPCY) as well as from other EU projects that promote innovative solutions for the decarbonisation of the heating and cooling sector in Europe.
The series of webinars aims at raising awareness on existing solutions which if replicated, could result in full decarbonisation the heating and cooling sector in Europe.
In this webinar (find out more about the first webinar here) we will present the winning project in the “DecarbIndustry” category. The winner is a train maintenance depot located in Cologne, Germany. Its heating and cooling system consist of groundwater source heat pumps and is capable of dual operation. This project was developed by Zent Frenger.
Moreoer, Calefa, a large heat pump manufacturer in Finland, will present its project which was developed in the city of Mäntsälä. This innovative project uses waste heat from a data centre to supply with heat in the local district heating network.
One more innovative heat pump application from Oilon oy will explain industrial heat recovery processes, which allow the reduction of CO2 emissions and higher energy efficiency solutions (speakers are to be confirmed).
Lastly, DryFiciency project, an EU H2020 funded project, which aims to upgrade the available excess/waste heat streams and to make them available for productive use at temperatures up to 160°C will also be presented. The deployment of heat pump technology will increase energy efficiency thus reducing fossil energy demand and related emissions.
The DryFiciency project is developing and testing specific heat pump solutions for drying bricks (industry partner: Wienerberger) and starch (industry partner: Agrana).
The HPCY, launched in 2011, is a project of EHPA that rewards every year the best solutions in decarbonising the building and industrial sectors, the most innovative heat pump solution and the most active city in terms of green energy. Until now, the award received more than 100 applications from all around Europe and awarded 15 best examples.
