Heat pumps and thermal batteries are increasingly considered important options for a range of primary producers that need heat for processing and cleaning and enjoy vast renewable resources but require reliability and heat and power on tap.

Heat pumps can significantly reduce power consumption by efficiently supplying heating and cooling for a range of farming applications, including:

  • heating of water for wash down and equipment cleaning

  • heating of animal rearing and accommodation

  • air-heating for drying produce

  • chilling milk and other products
