10 Facts about Heat Pumps

12 July 2017 by European Copper Institute

Heat pump technology is efficient and mature. Capacities range from 20kW to 100kW for residential applications and even higher capacities for commercial applications. Industrial and district heating heat pumps reach capacities of several MW. Operating the unit when surplus electricity is available and storing that surplus energy in the form of heat provides significant demand response capacity to the electric system and enables the integration of a larger share of renewable electricity.
