The technical potential of large and industrial heat pumps

Heat pumps are considered large if they exceed capacities of 100kW. They can easily reach the one to several megawatt range with the largest units providing 35MW in a single machine. Currently available heat pump technology can provide heat up to 100°C with a spread between source and sink temperature of approx. 50 K per stage. The current level of research and development projects as well as increased interest by new players to engage in the segment of large heat pumps leaves room for optimism. Study concludes a total CO2 emission reduction potential of 86,2 Mt with 21,5 Mt (25%) economically viable. There are Obstacles, challenges and opportunities limiting the use of heat pump in industry are as follows: Extreme requirements on a return of investment. Risk aversion vs. heat pumps which are not trusted, but perceived as a new, unproven technology is complicated by a comparatively low price for fossil fuels is still complicated by risks and opportunities to overcome.
