About the conference
Clean, efficient, and reliable energy systems are essential to meeting basic needs for comfortable, secure, and environmentally friendly building environments; food processing, transport, and storage; and industrial processes. Many analysts estimate that it will not be possible to achieve long-term climate, security, and energy goals without increasing the use of renewable heating and cooling hand in hand with large-scale refurbishment and renovation of the world’s existing buildings and industrial infrastructure.

The 14th IEA Heat Pump Conference will be held in Chicago, Illinois from Monday, May 15th through Thursday, May 18th in 2023 with the theme ‘Heat Pumps – Resilient and Efficient’.

Conference program highlights

  • High level invited speakers for the opening plenary sessions
  • High level invited keynote speakers leading each major conference oral technical session
  • Poster presentation sessions associated with each oral technical session
  • Exhibition of equipment and information kiosks
  • Technical visits
  • Social and sight-seeing program

Call for Papers
Abstracts (250 words maximum) covering the conference theme can be submitted on the conference website.
Then abstracts will be screened, and the authors will be advised of acceptance by June 15, 2022.

More information can be found on the Conference homepage

Info about HPT TCP by IEA conference

Every three years the Technology Collaboration Programme on Heat Pumping Technologies by International Energy Agency, (HPT TCP by IEA) stages the IEA Heat Pump Conference. We are one of 38 TCPs under the umbrella of IEA International Energy Agency (IEA) and the programme was founded in 1978. We have been active for more than 40 years, which is a strength since a lot of knowledge and experiences have been generated during the years.

Only a country’s government can participate in a TCP (Technology Collaboration Programme), not separate organizations. This means that all people living in a member country are participants of the programme. We have 17 members in HPT TCP. The current member countries are Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Italy, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

The HPT TCP is a non-profit organization working in the field of heat pumping technologies, i.e., all technologies where heat is pumped from a lower temperature level to a higher one, such as heat pumps, air conditioning, and refrigeration. Under the management of an Executive Committee representing the member countries, the programme carries out a strategy to accelerate the use of heat pumping technologies in all applications where they can reduce energy consumption and increase the use of renewal energy sources for the benefit of the environment.

The chairman for HPT TCP is Mr. Stephan Renz (Switzerland)
