The reduction of greenhouse gas emissions is a global challenge for today's and future generations in order to minimise the impact of global warming. In fact, the discussion is no longer if there is a global warming effect but rather how much global warming will occur.

Detailed program

The energy demand of the industry stands for around one third of the world's greenhouse gas emissions and for a successful decarbonisation of this sector, new technologies need to be phased in. Today's industry moves towards an electrified energy system based on wind, solar and other renewable sources, as well as more frequent recovery of excess industrial heat. This enables the integration of high-temperature heat pumps for process heat supply, reducing the demand for fossil fuels significantly.

Leveraging the potential of industrial heat pumps is highly attractive since it allows the industry to operate with significantly reduced emission of climate gases. However, there are challenges connected with implementing heat pump technology, especially in high-temperature applications such as industrial processes and district heating. There is a need for technical innovations to achieve lower specific investment costs and increased energy efficiency while maintaining technical feasibility and stable operation. High-temperature heat pumps are an important research focus of HighEFF's Research Area 3.
