O.2.1.1 Strategic outlook of Heat pump development in China

In order to reduce the pollution caused by the burning of coal, China has promoted the use of renewable energy sources. Based on this background, as an energy saving and renewable energy technology, air source heat pumps have achieved rapid growth in recent years. The compound annual growth rate of air source heat pump water heaters is more than 25%. However, air source heat pump industry needs more policy support, like listing air source heat pumps as a renewable energy technology, subsidy for air source heat pump installation in rural area and to set unified energy efficiency standards and labelling for all kinds of boilers. As the most important organization of Chinese heat pump industry, China Heat Pump Alliance will work together with International Copper Association to promote the healthy development of heat pumps.
