IRENA report presents update on heat pump costs and markets

Recognising that data on the costs and performance of heat pumps has not been widely available to policy makers, researchers or other stakeholders, the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) has released a report to fill that knowledge gap and support better informed decisions concerning the role of heat pumps.

The report, Renewable Solutions in End-uses: Heat Pump Costs and Markets, provides an overview of heat pump technologies and their applications; discusses building stock and the implications for the use of heat pumps in both new and old buildings; examines recent market developments and the acceleration in heat pump deployment – particularly in Europe; and offers a detailed review of cost and performance trends for heat pumps by technology, system size and - in some cases - dwelling type.
