Roundtable: Electrification of Heating - Trane Europe

Join us and our partners at the virtual roundtable discussion organised by  Trane Europe on January 20th at 10:30 AM CET to explore innovative #heating and #cooling ways to #decarbonize our economy, buildings and spaces.

Thomas Nowak, Secretary General of EHPA will represent the views of the heat pump industry on electrification of heating decarbonisation of Europe's heating and cooling sector



About the event:

Trane®, a brand of global climate innovator Trane Technologies (NYSE: TT), hosts a free virtual roundtable discussion, joined by organisations and public stakeholders, who share the common aspiration of fighting Climate Change. Participants will present real life environmental cases for decarbonisation of heating and cooling through electrification and discuss how to increase energy efficiency of our cities, buildings and spaces.

Hosted by Jose La Loggia, president of Trane for Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Thomas Nowak, secretary general of the European Heat Pump Association, attendees will learn how innovative approach to heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) allows four different projects to save over 3,400 tonnes of CO2 annually.

Our partners from across Europe will demonstrate how they are already taking on the challenge and using innovative solutions to drastically cut emissions.”

Senior managers, engineering teams and representatives of the following projects will participate in the roundtable event:

  1.  Energy Hub Aalsmeer, Netherlands: Heat in exchange for cold. Residual heat from the local datacentre as source of heat for nearby public utility buildings in Aalsmeer, Netherlands
  2. Mater Dei Hospital, Malta: Heat recovery project and integrated approach to HVAC plant - domestic hot water, dehumidification and space heating with significant reduction of the traditional boiler plant in the largest hospital in Malta.
  3. Excelsior Hotel Rapallo, Italy: Environmental responsibility and optimal climate comfort in rooms, conference areas, spa and large indoor heated swimming pool –efficient delivery of simultaneous, year-round cooling and heating without traditional boilers.
  4. Scottish Water Horizons: Cutting-edge combination of technologies harnessing heat from wastewater to deliver low carbon energy to a district heat network in the city of Stirling, U.K.

By 2030, thanks to the efficient and sustainable heating and cooling, the four projects will bring over 34,000 tonnes of CO2 emission savings, contributing to the commitments made by Trane Technologies to reduce one gigaton of customers’ carbon emissions by 2030 – equivalent to the annual carbon emissions of Italy, France and the United Kingdom combined.
