The Need for Quality in a Growing European Heat Pump Market
2018/01/18
-- EHPA Promoting Heat Pump KEYMARK Certificate
 
Europe celebrated a milestone in 2017: the installation of 10 million heat pumps. On this memorable occasion, JARN interviewed Thomas Nowak, secretary general of the European Heat Pump Association (EHPA), which has been promoting the heat pump KEYMARK, a single certification mark for a single European market, to achieve healthy heat pump industry development.


Thomas Nowak, secretary general of EHPA

JARN (J): EHPA has just celebrated 10 million heat pumps installed in Europe. How is the market developing?
 
Thomas Nowak (N): Our data shows that sometime in September 2017 we have passed the threshold of 10 million installed units in the market place. Also 2017 was the first year in which more than 1 million units were sold per year. After 13% and 12% growth in 2015 and 2016, we are expecting an even better development for 2017. If this growth continues, the installed stock is expected to double in six to eight years. The resulting economies of scale will make heat pump technology even more competitive and can accelerate market development and the investment in new research and production infrastructure.
