EDINBURGH, Scotland, July 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Delta Energy & Environment (Delta-ee), in association with the European Heat Pump Association (EHPA), are launching a new Guide that showcases European best practice to build successful and sustainable heat pump markets.
Today in Europe more than 750,000 heat pump systems are installed annually, and approximately 5.4 million systems have been deployed since 2005. Heat pump technology offers a huge untapped potential for energy efficiency and greenhouse gas emission savings, especially in markets where the technology is just emerging and its benefits are only now being fully recognised.
The Guide is aimed at all stakeholders inside and outside the heat pump industry, helping them to implement five guiding principles which will establish solid foundations for long term sustainable growth and maximise the market opportunities for heat pumps. The Guide's explanation on how this can be achieved is illustrated by experiences and case studies from various European markets.
Lukas Bergmann, Analyst in Delta-ee's Heat Pump Research Team comments:
"This Guide will help a range of stakeholders - from governments and policy makers to energy companies and technology manufacturers - to realise the significant potential for heat pumps. It provides readers with a simple set of principles that allow them to work towards making the story of heat pumps in their country a story of success. This Guide will be a useful tool for anyone connected to this industry."
The free Guide is available to download from Delta-ee's website, or directly from this link http://www.delta-ee.com/images/downloads/pdfs/2013/EHPA_BestPractice_FINAL_4_July.pdf
