Germany Specifies Natural Refrigerants as a Requirement for Heat Pumps to Get New Blue Angel Certification
An interim report outlines the progress made on a revised Blue Angel ecolabel.
Expanding its development of energy-efficient R290 heat pumps is helping Viessmann support the clean energy transition.
The 5mm Microgroove copper tubes require less material, giving lower system weight, while maintaining the same heating capacity.
‘Accelerating the EU’s Shift Towards Natural Refrigerant Domestic Heat Pumps’ will be available for download on June 27, following the webinar at 12pm CEST.
The HTi20 R290 heat pump can heat water up to 60°C (140°F) and has a COP of up to 5.02. It is suitable for both new and modernized buildings.
Viessmann’s new propane-based air-source heat pumps will enable easy replacement of domestic boilers in the UK’s existing housing stock.
A study of air-to-water heat pumps available on the German and EU markets shows R290-based equipment to be among the top energy performers.
As Viessmann aims for climate-neutrality across its entire value chain by 2050, an accelerated shift to heat pumps based on natural refrigerants like propane will be crucial.
The move is part of a DKR 2.5 billion (US$366 million) investment in energy efficiency and an effort to reduce Salling Group’s reliance on Russian gas.
