Heat Pumps in Denmark – an overview


Danish energy policy aims at making
the best possible use of energy
sources from within its own borders.
There is therefore a political focus on
reducing the use and production of
energy from fossil fuels in the form
of North Sea gas and oil to renewable
energy sources such as wind, solar
energy and biofuels. The political
incentives and rising energy prices
have resulted in rapid growth in the
heat pump market. Industry is increasingly
concentrating on efficient
energy use, and the incentives from
the energy utility companies help as
drivers for the industrial heat pump
market.
