A newly released report by the European Commission (EC) pushes the adoption of natural refrigerants heat pumps as a way to develop the European heat pump market against non-European competition.
Natural refrigerants-based equipment “can be an opportunity for the sector to differentiate itself with respect to non-EU competitors and to reduce dependence on non-EU suppliers.”
The report, “Heat Pumps in the European Union – Status Report on Technology Development, Trends, Value Chain and Markets,” was drafted by the Joint Research Centre (JRC), the European Commission’s science and knowledge service.
It was highlighted at the ATMOsphere (ATMO) Europe Summit 2022 by Eric Lecomte, Policy Officer at DG (Directorate-General) Energy, a department in the European Commission. ATMO Europe was organized by ATMOsphere, publisher of Hydrocarbons21.com.
