Heat Pumps in The Netherlands – an overview


As in many other countries, implementing
heat pumps in the Netherlands
is a sport for go-getters. It
seems that the energy put into this
by many during the last decades will
be worthwhile in the end. We see
increasing numbers of heat pumps
installed, new markets entered, new
products launched and concepts developed,
together with an increasing
number of enthusiastic and involved
persons. Slightly fewer heat pumps
were installed in 2010 than in 2009,
but this decrease is not very large
when seen in the context of the economic
crisis and (virtually) the end
of support by the Dutch government.
