The IEA Technology Collaboration Programme on Heat Pumping Technologies (HPT TCP) was submitted an extension for the period 1 March 2018 to 28 February 2023 by the IEA Committee on Energy Research and Technology (CERT).
In the approval, CERT states that “The HPT TCP strategy (vision, mission, objectives) are consistent with the strategies of the CERT and EUWP. The SWP for 2018-2023 shows very well how HPT will contribute to a clean, secure and affordable energy system. In the past term the TCP widened the scope from RDD&D mainly in building applications to other applications, such as HP in district heating and cooling, smart grids and industry. In the new term even further application fields will be addressed (such as the transport sector)”.
In the applications for an extension, a new strategic plan for HPT TCP was elaborated. It can be read and downloaded here: IEA Heat Pumping Technologies Strategic Plan 2018-2023
