SINTEF arranged for the second time a conference on high temperature heat pump addressing the potential and challenges of the technology under the aspect of decarbonizing the industry.
Necessity of technology
Thomas Nowak from the European Heat Pump Association opened the conference in front of around 100 participants in Copenhagen. He outlined the necessity of the technology in order to reduce the industrial carbon footprint, but also addressed the lack of knowledge about the potential, especially from political side.
In the three sessions of the conference the general potential and demand for high temperature was addressed as well as successful industrial cases and integration examples and the current developments and trends for high temperature heat pumps.
Current work on HTHP
In the concluding poster session PhD students as well as senior researchers presented their current work.
The conference was organized by SINTEF Energi AS, the Technical University of Denmark and the Danish Technological Institute with financial support from the Research Council of Norway. Participants from 11 different countries were represented at the event.
