HeAt PumPs in existing multi-family buildings for achieving union’s ENergy and envIroNmental Goals
Buildings are currently responsible for 40% of energy demands and 36% of CO2 emissions in Europe.
Heat pumps are the perfect technology for incorporating renewable electricity into heat production in buildings using photovoltaic panels.
The HAPPENING project was created to promote the installation of heat pumps combined with the production of clean electricity in existing multifamily residential building.
HAPPENING’s technological proposal is based on decentralised heat pumps, which are shared by residents in a building. They are simple-to-install, they do not bother the people living in the building and they can be easily adapted to a large number of different building situations. This leads to savings for individuals, improved indoor comfort and a significant reduction in the building’s CO2 emissions, thus helping to decarbonise and achieve the EU’s climate targets.
The project will run for 42 months.
