About the event

The Role of Heat Pumps in Decarbonisation online conference is aimed at anyone with an interest in using vapour compression technologies (such as high-temperature heat pumps) to decarbonise their process or space heating requirements.

It will cover both industrial and residential heat pump technologies and includes space heating and water heating applications.

Presentations will cover all elements of the decarbonisation HTHP journey from inception through to installation – what to know, what to avoid and what to expect.

Date: 28 October 2021  

Organised by EECA and Massey University.
