Celsius talk: “Heat-pumping the future of district energy”
Heat pumps are becoming an increasingly popular and efficient solution to raise the share of residual heat sources in district energy systems. In an attempt to help Celsius members better understand this developing technology, this Celsius Talk will bring together experts from the International Energy Agency’s (IEA) Heat Pumping Technologies programme Annex 47 to explore the main drivers and barriers related to the deployment of heat pumps in district energy systems. For example, we will discuss how the evolution of district energy systems toward lower temperature has favored the integration of heat pumps and how hybrid heat pumps may even help the cost effectiveness of heating systems.
Join us on Thursday March 28 at 10:30 for an interactive discussion with:
- Svend Vinther Pedersen, Senior specialist at the Danish Technological Institute
- Markus Lindahl, Project Manager for RISE
- Roman Geyer, Research Engineer in Eclectic Energy Systems at the Austrian Institute of Technology
Moderated by Emilia Pisani, Communications Officer at Johanneberg Science Park
About Annex 47
The objective of this annex is to gather information and ideas for policy makers and decision makers and planners of energy systems in urban areas concerning the possibilities and barriers related to the implementation of heat pumps in DHC systems. Click here to read more.
