10 million heat pumps – what’s next?
Today, the 10 millionth heat pump will be installed somewhere in Europe, according to recent figures from the European Heat Pump Association (EHPA)
This is good news for the energy transition as more heat pumps means greener and smarter energy, less emissions and a cleaner air! Looking at all existing thermal solutions, the share of heat pumps still remains modest in Europe but is growing at an increasing speed.
Benefits of 10 million installed heat pumps in 2017 contributed to:
333 GW - storage capacity
165 TWh - heat produced
106 TWh - renewable energy
59.3 TWh - electricity used
27.1 Mt - CO2 saved
135 TWh - energy saved
Ahead of a huge ’10 million heat pump party’ event organised by EHPA in Brussels, Thomas Nowak, Secretary general, said “Today we celebrate what we have accomplished so far. But tomorrow more heat pumps will be needed. The new energy system will require further integration of technologies and sectors and we need policy-makers to facilitate this change.This is to be continued in 2018.”
