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.
In October 2017 EHPA decided to respond to the challenges that cities and towns all over Europe are going through. Ahead of local governments stand great changes to provide liveable, healthier and environmentally friendly urban areas. Unfortunately, the progress is slow as potential of some technologies, like heat pumps (HPs), is not exploited fully.
We are pleased to announce that the local governments of Budapest, London, Madrid and Riga responded to our campaign. We are looking forward to further cooperation with those and other cities all over Europe to find the best heat pump solutions!
This is why, EHPA decided to contact European mayors and help them plan(t) the future of their cities now. We reached out to the most progressive local governments all over Europe!
As in our previous campaigns, we have color coded the 6 benefits of heat pumps in a postcard. Together with the postcard, mayors received boxes with 6 tulip bulbs indicating the 6 advantages of HPs:
By sending back their Flower Postcards, mayors can now request from EHPA a profiled info-package, meeting with heat pump experts or share their success stories of applied heat pump technology and win the “Heat Pump City of the Year” Award.
Planning well in advance can make a difference and is not different from planting tulip bulbs.
Next year European cities will not only flourish with flowers but also with heat pumps!
