The webinar will present results of a study carried out by Ecofys for the European Heat Pump Association. The aim of the study was to quantify the potential of heat pumps to save CO2-eq emissions and energy and to increase the use of renewable energy in the EU’s building sector until 2030. The study assesses related impacts on investments and energy costs.

When compared to gas condensing boilers, heat pumps achieve much better results in fighting CO2 emissions originating from dwellings in Europe. Their reduction potential even increases when combined with photovoltaics, particularly in countries where electricity generation bears a high CO2 conversion factor. That is the main conclusion of the BSRIA study “Electric technologies – Potential for achieving EU energy targets in residential dwellings (2013)”, commissioned by the Leonardo ENERGY initiative.
