REGIONAL REPORT ASIA AND PACIFIC


The technology development of the heat pump in Asia and Pacific Ocean state is
summarized in this paper. In recent years of demand in this region, especially in China, the
expansion of the air conditioner for residential and air conditioner for business use is
remarkable. A climate varied from the cold district to the tropical zone is distributed, and
moreover, a variety of heat pump equipment corresponding to the culture in each country are
developed, and applied as for Asia and Pacific Ocean state. The use of the approach of the
energy saving development, the load leveling of the equipment and utilizing the ground
thermal energy has risen rapidly to secure the stable supply of energy, too. Recently, the
argument of global warming measures has risen.
This paper introduces the energy saving approach of the heat pump, reduction of the
greenhouse gases emission and concerning the approach for recycling in each country.
