A heat pump is a device that transfers heat energy from a source of heat to a heat sink.

  • In many industrial processes, heat pumps are applied to recover process waste heat. They are used in dehumidifaction, distillation and evaporation processes, and also for water heating and combined heating and cooling. There are major opportunities in the food and chemical industries. (source EHPA)
  • Large heat pumps in commercial/institutional buildings use water loops (hydronic) for heat and cold distribution, so they can provide heating and cooling simultaneously. (source IEA)
