Report from the 12th IEA Heat Pump Conference: Vol.35 No 2/2017


The recently released issue of the Heat Pumping Technologies (HPT) Magazine highlights the 12th IEA Heat Pump Conference  and summarises some of the numerous sessions, Workshops, Award ceremonies, and presentations given at the Conference.


In the Foreword, the Chairman of the National Organizing Committee, Onno Kleefkens, gives his view of the Conference.

Then, there are two different presentations from the Opening sessions, with very different subjects. The Workshops of the Conference were centred around the central work within the HPT TCP (Technology Collaboration Programme on Heat Pumping Technologies), and six of the Workshops are summarised by their Chairmen in this issue. There were four Awards at the Conference, all presented in this issue. Also, there are three personal accounts from Conference participants, each with their own selection of presentations.


In addition to the comprehensive coverage of the Conference, two articles present the concept of Personal cooling, and how heat pumps can be used in advanced thermal grids, respectively.
