Heat to Cool - Using heat pumps to cool our warming planet
Heat accounts for more than half of the global total final energy consumption, mostly produced from fossil fuels. If the ambitious targets set in the historic Paris Agreement are to be achieved, we need to accelerate heat decarbonization and create a better world for our future generations. In the drive for a carbon-neutral future, energy-efficient heat pumps are rapidly becoming the technology of choice. Using heat pumps to cool our warming planet makes a lot of sense.

District heating

District Heating

In industry and commerce, the requirements for heating and process heat are highly specific. Heat pumps can very often satisfy these needs. Thanks to their efficiency and short amortization period, they represent an environmentally friendly and economically attractive alternative to conventional heating systems. A heat pump raises heat from its surroundings – water, or waste process heat – from a lower temperature level to a higher.

Whatever application may interest your company for a heat pump, it will – when its overall life cycle is considered – amortize quickly by a reduction in energy consumption and emissions that affect the global climate. In addition, emphasis is placed on using natural refrigerants such as ammonia wherever possible.
