Integrating heat pumps into the electricity system: TenneT and Viessmann on the leading edge

Listen to the latest episode of Talking New Energy, Integrating heat pumps into the electricity system: TenneT and Viessmann on the leading edge.

As heat pumps and distributed energy become a bigger part of our energy system, they will bring additional demands on the grid. But smart control of these appliances can help to solve these demands, as well as providing new ways to help balance the grid. Optimising millions of heat pumps and other appliances in our homes requires new approaches, and in this episode we look at one such new initiative in Germany, involving Viessmann, a manufacturer of heat pumps, and TenneT, one of the four transmission system operators in Germany, and the Equigy Crowd Balancing Platform.

Jon Slowe is joined by Axel Kiessling from TenneT in Germany, one of the four German TSOs; Hans Schermeyer from Viessmann’s Energy Services, one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of climate solutions; and Delta-EE expert Lucy Murley.
