Last week the ExCo delegates of HPT TCP met for four days of meetings (7-10 November) in Sophia Antipolis in France.
Among the special items handled, was the planning for the 12th IEA Heat Pump Conference that will take place in Rotterdam in the Netherlands 15-18 May next year. Also the strategy of the HPT Programme for the forthcoming five year period was discussed in a strategy workshop.
Among the normal procedure, the ongoing collaborative research projects (the Annexes) were followed up and ideas and proposals for new projects were discussed and decisions on how to proceed were taken. The Annex “Acoustic Signatures of Heat Pumps” was approved, which means that new research groups and disciplines will be introduced in the Programme. The new Annex will receive the number 51.
