All hands to pump in Nuremberg

GERMANY – The fourth round of the European Heat Pump Summit, sponsored by Chillventa, is scheduled to take place on the 20th and 21st of October 2015. The event has been described as featuring first-class heat pump expertise and also boasts a high-calibre summit programme with international speakers.
To this end, heat pump experts from around the world will gather in Nuremberg to share knowhow, discuss research outcomes and garner information about new trends and developments. Alongside the summit will be the Foyer-Expo, which the organisers claim is an equally high-quality exhibition event with more than two-thirds of this year’s participating exhibitors coming from outside Germany.
This edition of the European Heat Pump Summit is slated to cover a wide range of topics associated with heat pumps, including industrial and commercial applications for heat pumps and the latest research and development. The event will also cast its eye on application scenarios for heat pumps in both housing construction and in hybrid systems, while particular attention will be paid to the development of components and the integration of heat pumps into smart grids.
“In the years between the Chillventa fairs, the European Heat Pump Summit has established itself as a key European meeting place for heat pump specialists, where exhibitors, speakers and participants from all over the world gather to initiate dialogue and obtain in-depth technical information at this truly expert-to-expert event” declared the Head of Events at NürnbergMesse, Alexander Stein.
“As in previous years, industry experts can look forward to a range of interesting presentations. In addition, we are once again offering a lecture series on the commercial and industrial use of the heat pump in the German-speaking Connecting Experts: professional dialogue and networking opportunity regions. The summit provides access to a great deal of high-calibre technical expertise and the ideal opportunity to network in a packed two-day programme,” added Mr Stein.
The principal areas of focus during the symposium concern the potential for heat pumps in the various markets, the tapping of renewable energies when using heat pumps in nZEBs for sustainable and responsible business and also the combination of heat pumps with other heat generators (i.e. hybrid heat pumps). The symposium will also examine how components and products are being developed for the innovative systems of the future. More than 30 renowned German and international speakers will be present to answer questions about the status quo and the future of the heat pump as they see it.

The organisers also claim that a further highlight of this year’s summit will be the heat pump programme which is set to be presented by the International Energy Agency (IEA-HPT) and which will feature presentations relating to R&D.
