Project management of Annex 49 in the heat pump programme HPT of the IEA
All new buildings in Europe must be designed as net zero energy buildings (nZEB) from 1 January 2021. Building technology concepts for achieving these requirements are therefore of great interest. Heat pump systems are emerging as standard solutions for nZEB due to their high efficiency.
On behalf of the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE), the Building Technology Group of the IET is leading Annex 49 in the heat pump programme HPT of the International Energy Agency IEA on the integration and design of heat pumps for net zero energy buildings, in which the eight countries AT, BE, CH, DE, NO, SE, UK, US are participating.
