 Dear HighEFF friends,

The newsletters from FME HighEFF will update you on some of the recent activities within the centre or associated activities. In this newsletter you can read a bit about an internal workshop to enhance strengthened collaboration within FME HighEFF and information about a relevant workshop on High Temperature Heat Pumps (hosted by associated project HeatUp). 

And… please note the dates for the upcoming FME HighEFF workshop; 25th and 26th October!

Kind regards

Workpackage leaders and RA leaders at NTNU and SINTEF gathered

August 21, the FME HighEFF organized workshop for all WP and RA leaders in HighEFF, where the focus was on closer cooperation across work packages, research partners and industry that are part of the centre .

 As one of the biggest projects within SINTEF and NTNU, it is important to really succeed with the collaboration among R&D partners and industry. Through the group work, we developed several specific actions for follow-up and measures that can strengthen cooperation internally (17 R&D partners, 27 industry partners) and contribute to the value creation the Research Council, industry and all involved expect from the centre.

International Workshop on High Temperature Heat Pumps

11 September in Copenhagen

We invite researchers and practitioners to join a one-day workshop to disseminate and discuss the potentials, the technology, the energy system and the research and development trends in the field.

The workshop will focus on various aspects of heat pumps focusing on high-temperature heat pumps as well as the potential of utilizing district heating:

• Market potential of high temperature heat pumps: Mapping of applications with heat sources and sinks (including district heating), Market situation, Policies and legislation & Barriers to progress

• Experimental and simulation based developments on component and system level: Vapor Compression Heat Pumps, Hybrid Heat pumps, Mechanical Vapor Recompression and alternative technologies, Advanced cycle layouts, Working fluids & Compression technologies

• Industrial cases and suppliers products: Industrial case studies & Market ready products

The workshop is held in connection with the 3rd International Conference on Smart Energy Systems and 4th Generation District Heating. Participants of the conference may join the workshop free of charge.
