TCP on Heat Pumping Technologies by IEA

Every three years the Technology Collaboration Programme on Heat Pumping Technologies by International Energy Agency, (IEA HPT TCP) stages the IEA Heat Pump Conference. We are members of IEA International Energy Agency (IEA) and the programme was founded in 1978. We have been active in more than 40 years, which is a strength since a lot of knowledge and experiences has been generated during the years.

Only a country's government can participate in a TCP (Technology Collaboration Programme), not separate organisations. This means that all people living in a member country are participants of the programme. We have 16 members in HPT TCP. The current member countries are Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Italy, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and the United States.

The HPT TCP is a non-profit organization working in the field of heat pumping technologies, i.e. all technologies where heat is pumped from a lower temperature level to a higher one, such as heat pumps, air conditioning and refrigeration. Under the management of an Executive Committee representing the member countries, the programme carries out a strategy to accelerate the use of heat pumping technologies in all applications where they can reduce energy consumption and increase the use of renewal energy sources for the benefit of the environment.

Chairman for HPT TCP is Mr. Stephan Renz (Switzerland).

The HPT TCP is part of a network of autonomous collaborative partnerships focused on a wide range of energy technologies known as Technology Collaboration Programmes or TCPs. The TCPs are organized under the auspices of the International Energy Agency (IEA), but the TCPs are functionally and legally autonomous. Views, findings and publications of the HPT TCP do not necessarily represent the views or policies of the IEA Secretariat or its individual member countries.
