Danish Technological Institute is Denmark’s representative in the International Energy Agency’s heat pump programme

Project period: April 2024 – March 2026.

Since 2013, Denmark has participated in the International Energy Agency’s (IEA) heat pump programme – Technology Collaboration Programme on Heat Pumping Technologies (HPT TCP). The Heat Pump Program was founded in 1978 and is one of approximately 40 cooperation programs under the International Energy Agency. From the beginning, Danish Technological Institute has been Denmark’s representative in the Executive Committee (ExCo) of the Heat Pump Programme, and the Danish Energy Agency has now appointed Jakob Thomsen, Danish Technological Institute, to continue this work for another two years.

IEA’s heat pump programme is an international source of independent information and expertise in environmental and energy savings through the use of heat pump technology – including refrigeration and air conditioning. Under the heat pump programme, which has 20 member countries, international high-quality collaborative activities are carried out to improve energy efficiency and to minimize a negative environmental impact.

Denmark has a strong interest in continuing the active participation in the program, as heat pump technology is nationally and internationally recognized as a core technology in the green transition, and as participation in an international forum for collaboration could further promote the technology.

The participation in the IEA heat pump programme must contribute to:

  • promote and launch projects that will be of interest to Denmark and to the Danish business community.
  • ensure that Danish companies and research environments get the opportunity to participate in and benefit from international collaborations about heat pumps – and thus get access to all the knowledge generated during the program.

In addition, international experience and knowledge from the IEA Heat Pump Programme must be disseminated and communicated to both the Danish Energy Agency and to other relevant Danish stakeholders.
