Heat pumps can also provide heat for for industry. European industries like steel, chemicals, paper, food, and tobacco use a huge amount of energy – about a quarter of the EU’s consumption.
District heating allows heat to be produced in one place then distributed via insulated pipes to houses and businesses.
The heating and cooling sector is responsible for 51% of final energy demand in Europe and for 27% of its CO2 emissions. Decarbonising society is impossible without decarbonising heating and cooling.
