WEBINAR - Large heat pumps in district heating: a winning team to REPower EU!

Join this free webinar to discover more about the REPowerEU plan (May 2022).

The REPowerEU plan aims to drastically reduce the use of natural gas in heating, thanks to the quicker deployment of renewable sources, and efficient heating technologies such as heat pumps.  

Large-scale heat pumps offer promising opportunities to develop efficient and sustainable heating and cooling networks, optimising the use of renewable electricity for balancing, and delivering renewable and circular heat resources into our networks. 

In the context of REPowerEU and the publication of a new IEA report on Heat Pumps, this webinar will explore the challenges and opportunities for the deployment of large-scale heat pumps in European heating and cooling networks.
