Hybrid Transition of HPC2020

The 13th IEA Heat Pump Conference (HPC2020) will take place on April 26-29, 2021. The conference venue will be Ramada Plaza Hotel Jeju, Korea. However, due to COVID-19 outbreak, there will also be an online platform for those who cannot attend the conference physically. Thus, we are aiming for a hybrid conference.

Still, a number of changes along with the transition of the conference are under discussion. Detailed updates and changes will be announced promptly on the conference website http://www.hpc2020.org. Also you may access some information at HPT website www.heatpumpingtechnologies.org.

Although the conference has changed several times, we appreciate your patience, understanding and strong support of the HPC 2020. We hope you stay safe and healthy, and we are looking forward to seeing you at the conference!

About Conference

Energy and the environment – two topics that are always of great concern to human beings. Heating and cooling play a great role in our daily life, we use a tremendous amount of fossil fuels for heating and cooling. When changing temperature levels using substantial energy input, a heat pump is always recommended as promising technologies against climate change.

With this in mind, the 13th IEA Heat Pump Conference will be held in Jeju Island from Monday, April 26st through Thursday, April 29th in 2021. With the theme ‘Heat Pumps – Mission for the Green World’, we aim to address global climate change and discuss necessary actions.
