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.
The Heat Pump KEYMARK is a voluntary certification mark that supports the quality and performance of heat pumps on the European market. It can apply to all heat pumps, combination heat pumps and hot water heaters. The certification is based on independent third-party testing and is compliant with efficiency requirements as set by Ecodesign Lot 1, 2 and 10.
The scheme is owned by CEN, the European Committee for Standardization and its secretariat is coordinated by EHPA. The certificate is granted by independent Certification Bodies and the testing is carried out by registered Test Centres.
The Heat Pump KEYMARK offers a single certificate for a single European market,as it is recognised in several member states, while the number of participating countries is constantly increasing. The quality mark can be used for access to public subsidies in most European countries while creating trust in the marketplace through a transparent and strong company image. It is mutually accepted by all the empowered Certification Bodies and has no minimum requirements.
