European Heat Pump Summit Newsroom

European Heat Pump Summit 2021 goes live on site

The international heat pump community is looking forward to two days full of top-notch knowledge sharing about current market developments, research and development topics, and trends in applications. At the seventh European Heat Pump Summit – powered by Chillventa on 26 and 27 October 2021, the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg will again be enlivened by more than 200 participants from 22 countries. They’ll be able to talk with 34 renowned presenters about innovative technologies in component production, uses for heat pumps in trade and industry, and questions about refrigerants and the use of hybrid systems and high-temperature heat pumps. In the accompanying Foyer Expo, companies and associations will be offering their services and product innovations to the attending professional public. Additionally, this year’s conference will be supplemented with digital components like a live stream and chat functions.

Making business contacts in person, attending intriguing presentations with no interposed computer display, scrutinising products and innovations on site – all of this has become available again promptly for the European Heat Pump Summit 2021. “After a turbulent period, we’re especially pleased to see our exhibition centre bubbling with life again, and once again becoming a setting for first-class knowledge transfers and continuing education. The European Heat Pump Summit has become established as one of Europe’s major, central events for all aspects of heat pumps – as is clearly reflected in the figures for attendees and exhibitors”, says Daniela Heinkel, Director European Heat Pump Summit for NürnbergMesse.

Main congress themes 2021

The four main thematic blocks at the European Heat Pump Summit 2021 are market developments, R&D, development of components, and heat pump applications. The internationally renowned speakers come from R&D establishments, universities, testing centres and laboratories, energy utilities, associations and component manufacturers. The 34 presentations will reach an international professional audience of technicians, researchers, designers, product developers, component manufacturers and sub-suppliers. The audience will also include decision-makers and consulting engineers for product development, and architects and planners from all areas of heat pump production and application in the industrial and commercial segments.

Programme highlights include a report on the Heat Pump Conference in South Korea in April 2021, market and energy policy developments (German and international), completed, ongoing and planned research into technology and applications, the latest developments by industrial companies and research centres, hybrid systems, high-temperature heat pumps, and special applications in industry and commerce with specific use case examples from the food industry, data centres, metalworking, industrial drying, and district heating.

All presentations will be live-streamed online. The detailed programme can be downloaded at: www.hp-summit.de/programme

All presentations will remain available online for attendees until 5 November 2021.

Practical connections and new products in the Foyer Expo

The accompanying Foyer Expo offers attendees a chance to bridge the gap to practice, and to explore new products close-up from major-name makers of components and heat pumps and from institutions and associations based both in Germany and abroad. The 16 exhibitors participating in this popular format will offer attendees excellent opportunities to strike up expert conversations and get answers to their individual questions.

Hygiene concept ensures safety

NürnbergMesse’s all-inclusive hygiene concept for conferences means that everyone attending can network safely and enjoy their time at the Summit. Admission is subject to “3G” documentation – vaccination, recovery or a recent negative test – and compliance with “AHA” rules (distancing, hygiene, masking) at the site. The good news: Seated audience members need not wear a mask, so they can concentrate fully on the absorbing presentations.
