The time is now for air/air heat pumps

The market for air/air heat pumps (A/A HP) has long been established – it is a global, high volume market selling well-tested products, primarily for cooling applications (and therefore usually referred to as ‘air conditioning’). But based on our recent research under the Electrification of Heat Service we believe there is significant untapped potential for A/A HP to be used for residential heating in Europe. In some market segments, A/A HP could even threaten the incumbent hydronic systems.  

So why do we think the stars are aligning for A/A HP right now in the heating market, when the technology has been around for decades? Three reasons:​

Accelerating the transition to 'new heat' top of the agenda at the biggest ever Delta-EE European Heat Summit

It was an inspiring two days at the Delta-EE European Heat Summit in London last week when close to 100 delegates from across the heating sector were brought together in an exciting programme spanning start-ups to energy giants and topics as diverse as hydrogen networks, smart electric heating controls and heat-as-a-service.

With this year’s Summit, it seems to us at Delta-EE that we have reached a tipping point in the decarbonisation debate. Decarbonising new build across Europe is looking increasingly positive, and though retrofit remains the largest challenge, the Summit demonstrated that there is a wealth of technologies, business models and proposition ideas that – targeted at the right sectors – promise to overcome some of this challenge.

How the transition to new heat is disrupting the heating market and creating opportunities

We are at a pivotal time for the heating market in Europe, as the transition from ‘old’ to ‘new’ heat gains traction.

The decarbonisation agenda is finally placing heat at its centre in many markets. The heating market is seeing more disruption than ever before, as new market players compete with the incumbents, new business models and propositions emerge, traditional routes to market are turned on their heads, and technology ecosystems evolve.
