An interview with an Operating Agent
Van D. Baxter, Co-Operating Agent of Annex 53: The demand for cooling is going to explode in the near future.
Growing populations and improving economies world-wide, especially in the developing world, are projected to lead to huge increases in global demand for space cooling, dehumidification, and refrigeration. This will make reaching global energy and climate goals extremely challenging. Therefore Annex 53 has been started with the objective to develop technology solutions for higher efficiency air conditioning/refrigeration systems to help reduce projected energy consumption increases.

Industrial Heat Pumps
– Good examples from ongoing Annex

Even though heat pumps often are thought of as domestic products, they do have a large potential also in industrial implementations. However, such implementations may imply significant challenges. The challenges are connected to the fact that each solution often must be tailor-made to fit a specific application. Despite this, industrial use of heat pumps could be given much more credibility than what is currently done. This issue of HPT Magazine focuses on industrial heat pumps and shows examples of applications.

In the two topical articles stories are shared on how heat pumps are used to exploit excess heat from industries. The first one tells how two large heat pumps turn waste heat from a steel and rolling mill in Austria into an environmentally friendly energy source in the district heating network. The second one describes how a high-temperature heat pump converts waste heat from a data centre into process heat in a cheese factory in Switzerland.
