Heat pumps to ensure renewable, highly efficient heating, cooling and sanitary hot water production in a Spanish passive house building
Buildings consume roughly 40% of the total energy in Europe and around 80% of that energy is used for heating and cooling purposes. Improving the energy efficiency of buildings is therefore one of the major axes of the European Green Deal and the 2050 decarbonisation strategy.
Heating and cooling play a major role to achieve these goals and heat pumps represent one of the sustainable technologies with the highest growth rate in Europe (12,8% sales growth in 2018, according to the latest EHPA statistical report from 2019).
They offer the triple advantage of high energy efficiency, renewable energy and combining heating and cooling – thus providing a major opportunity to address the challenge of achieving net zero energy buildings as well as sustainable renovation of existing systems.
