Heat pumps: No-way or Norway?

Michael Bantle explores the key drivers towards the increased acceptance of heat pumps

During the recent EHPA and DryFiciency seminar towards greener energy, Michael Bantle Senior Researcher SINTEF Energy Research, explored the key drivers towards the increased acceptance of heat pumps (HP).  Specifically, in Scandinavia HP experience a high acceptance, with heat pumps becoming the "standard" solution for building heating as well as several industry segments. This has also resulted in a number of Start-Up companies & projects for High Temperature Heat Pumps (HTHP).

Pioneer EU Heat Pump Technology successfully put to the test with novel turbo compressors

Pioneer EU Heat Pump Technology successfully put to the test with novel turbo compressors

As part of the EU milestone to make leaps in energy efficiency savings and a 55% GHG emissions cut by 2030, real time industrial high-temperature heat pump test will go through its demonstration paces at Lindum in Norway next month. The Horizon 2020 DryFiciency open loop, high-temperature heat pump demonstrations are the first-ever validations in industrial settings for utilizing heat of up to 155 degrees Celsius, using technology developed by a consortium of Nordic champions Rotrex, Epcon and Scanship led by the leading Scandinavian research organisation SINTEF.
