Gas-driven sorption heat pumps; a potential trend-setting heating technology

Dawoud, Belal

Increased efforts to reduce CO2 emissions and continuous increases in fossil energy prices have led to stronger legislation concerning energy utilisation efficiency in the domestic heating sector. Accordingly, German gas utilities and the key European manufacturers of gas heating appliances have teamed up to form what is known as the “Gas Heat Pump Initiative” to introduce new heating technologies, which are capable of achieving an incremental improvement of gas utilisation efficiency compared to that delivered by gas condensing technology. This article provides a brief introduction to these innovative heating appliances and a presentation of the gas heat pump initiative.
