Heat Pump City of the Year Award 2019

| Registrations are open!


#HPCY2019 - DEADLINE 29th of April 2019




The Heat Pump City of the Year Award (#HPCY2019) is an EHPA project which awards the most efficient, smart and sustainable heat pump project at local level.

This year’s award will be handed to the successful winners city during the HP Forum 2019 on the 15th of May. 

The HPCY Award project 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.

The project aims to:

  • Collect best practice examples of heat pumps in urban areas to present to EU authorities

  • Create role models for those who still hesitate to change

  • Raise people’s awareness on the potential of heat pumps

The competition is calling for smart heat pump examples from the whole chain of applications: single residential, commercial and industrial buildings. Furthermore, another important element is the level of integration in thermal grids and with other renewable technologies.

For this year competition, we still have four categories:


  • Heat Pump City of the Year award -  Main category, is highly recommended to have an active role and support of one city.

  • DecarbIndustry – Smart use of waste heat, reduction of CO2 of the industrial process, cost reduction (both on energy and final product) evap/cond temperature lift reached.

  • DecarBuilding (residential and commercial) – RES integration, CO2 reductions, sCOP level,  easy installation.

  • Next Generation Heat Pump – High level of innovation, integration with other RES technologies (towards 100% renewable), cost reduction potential (installation – unit – heating/cooling).
