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.

Below is a list of articles included in the Magazine. The articles in bold can also be found further down, in versions shortened by the HPC.

Foreword: Industrial Applications of Heat Pumps
During the years, the HPT TCP has put some focus on industrial heat pumps, IHPs. This has been done in four different projects, annexes, where the initial broad perspective on research and development regarding IHP technology now has shifted towards practical application and integration. The currently running annex focuses on development and distribution of information material for policy makers, associations, and industries.

Column: Challenges for the Industrial Heat Pumps
Heatpumps are making their way into the industrial sector. Industries in fields such as forest products, textiles, chemicals, and others, make use of heatpumps for drying, washing, evaporation etc. But there are challenges. Follow the link to see the ones that stands out.

Heat Pumping Technologies News: IEA HPT TCP National Experts’ meeting 2019!
Welcome to the IEA HPT TCP National Experts’ meeting 2019! This one-day meeting (previously called the National Teams’ meeting, NT meeting), will take place on Thursday 24 October 2019, at the Nürnberg Messe, Nuremberg, Germany, 09.00-16.30  (the day after the European Heat pump Summit 2019, https://www.hp-summit.de/en).

News in fokus: Tracking Clean Energy Progress: heat pumps are not on track
The International Energy Agency, IEA, identifies heat pumps as an important technology in the necessary energy system transition. But, according to IEA’s overview Tracking Clean Energy Progress, heat pumps are not on track regarding marketpenetration, costs and performance.

Topical Article: Waste heat recovery at the steel and rolling mill “Marienhütte”, Graz (Austria)
A steel and rolling mill used for increased environmental friendliness. That might sound strange, but is actually happening in Graz, Austria, where the mill is connected to the district heating grid. One part of the success story is two large and highly efficient heat pumps installed at the mill. Thanks to them, excess heat of temperatures as low as 30 °C can be utilized for district heating.

Topical Article: From Waste Heat to Cheese
Data centres are known for producing excess heat. The new centre in Appenzell, Switzerland is no exception: in full operation it could provide the district heating network with approximately 1.5 MW excess heat. But the benefits don’t end there. Thanks to the installation of a high-temperature heat pump, the excess heat will also be used as process heat in a neighbouring cheese factory.

Non-topical Article: The added value of heatpumps for grid stability via demand response
With renewable energy sources the electricity production becomes more variable and unpredictable, causing an imbalance between supply and demand. But balance is necessary. A possible solution to this is demand flexibility: making the electricity demand follow the supply, rather than the traditional way, the other way around. Such demand flexibility can be reached through demand response (DR)or energy storage. If these are combined, and complemented with a heat pump, they offer an interesting possibility for demand side flexibility in domestic settings.
