In its REPowerEU plan, the European Commission has set ambitious targets for heat pump deployment: 50 million heat pumps to be installed by 2030, with an annual growth of 16%.
Member states are getting ready with their own heat pump roll-out plans. But how much energy and CO2 savings can they expect?
The H2020 project streamSAVE supports countries in developing savings estimations under Art.3 and Art.7 of the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED). A fascinating output of the project is the “Guidance on Standardized saving methodologies (energy, CO2 and costs)” to assist EU member states in more accurately calculating savings for a set of new energy efficiency actions.
This webinar explained the Guidance and zoomed in on heat pumps. Speakers elaborated on the status of the European heat pump market, and shed light on the potential of heat pumps for industrial processes.
