Decarbonizing district heating with heat pump technology


Decarbonizing district heating systems is rapidly gaining popularity to improve overall energy efficiency and minimize the impact on the environment. Within this trend, heat pump technology is becoming increasingly recognized as a sustainable way to provide low-cost energy with reduced CO2 emissions.

Join GEA’s Cooling Club webinar on District Heating entitled “Decarbonizing district heating with heat pump technology”. Svend Vinther Pedersen, senior consultant from The Danish Technological Institute and GEA district heating expert Kenneth Hoffmann will provide their insights on how to decarbonize district heating and decrease energy bills with heat pumps.

In this webinar, we will:

  • Look at the key findings of the IEA Annex47 report: Heat Pumps in District Heating and Cooling Systems;
  • Explore the economic and environmental benefits of heat pumps in district heating;
  • Consider the specific benefits of different heat sources (air, seawater, sewage water, ground source water and combined heating/cooling) for heat pump technology;
  • Establish the water temperatures achievable in district heating systems using heat pumps;
  • Provide case stories from successful heat pump installations in district heating.
