​The 21st Heat Pump Forum took place in Berlin from Nov. 8 to 9, 2023. Representatives from industry, research and politics discussed the future of heat pumps.
The EBC was represented with its own stand, supervised by Stephan Göbel and Florian Will. There, an innovative method for the normative assessment of heat pumps was presented on the basis of a poster entitled "Realistic standard tests using the compensation method: integration of the heat pump controller in the assessment". With this evaluation method, heat pumps will in future be tested under dynamic rather than stationary boundary conditions. This means that more realistic efficiency figures can be expected.
Stephan Göbel was also able to present the proposal for the new assessment standard in a 5-minute science pitch. The positive response from the audience was reflected both in discussions at the stand and in productive conversations during the evening event.
