In the Celsius talk webinar three participants from HPT Annex 47 presented results related to heat pumps in district heating and cooling systems. Svend Vinther Pedersen (DTI) talked about the work done within Annex 47 and the combination of heat pumps and district heating in general. Thereafter followed Roman Geyer (AIT), who talked about barriers and opportunities for large-scale heat pumps in district heating and cooling networks. Finally, Markus Lindahl (RISE) presented results related to optimizing the combination of heat pumps and district heating in multi-family houses. The webinar was ended with time for discussions and questions.
IEA Heat Pumping Technologies Annex 47; “Heat Pump in District Heating and Cooling systems”
Today the Annex 47 regarding heat pumps in district heating systems is an important annex under the IEA Heat Pumping Technologies program because more and more countries have realized that district heating is a way to phase out fossil fuel.
