They integrate multiple energy sources, bridging the electric and thermal sector on a local and regional level (micro grids, DHC).
Heat pumps are easy to install and widely used in all thermal applications (buildings, transport, white goods) and industrial processes. Refrigerants and other components are available in sufficient quantities.
The technology is recognised for its merits in legislation and existing energy models.
EHPA will be a forward-looking association aiming at putting heat pumps at the centre of the energy system by communicating the benefits of heat pumps, providing relevant information and being a reference point and integrator to all stakeholders.
