The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

Decarbonisation of society must include a decarbonisation of heating & cooling in industry and commerce. This brochure, released by the European Heat Pump Association (EHPA), includes application examples of 15 projects that show how heat pumps can be efficient and effective in large projects.   Contents include:

  By François Durier (CETIAT, France)     Certified characteristics of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) appliances are useful for product selection and users’ information needs. They also contribute to a fair competition between manufacturers. Certification of the energy performance parameters makes available trustworthy input data for the energy performance calculation of buildings.     What is certification?
