Technology Collaboration Programme on Heat Pumping Technolgies by IEA

Heat Pumping Technologies play a vital role in accelerating the transformation to an efficient, renewable, clean, and secure energy sector.

The Programme is a key worldwide player in this process by communicating and generating independent information, expertise, and knowledge related to heat pumping technologies.

The main benefits of being a member of HPT TCP

The Programme is a forum for international co-operation within Heat Pumping Technologies and the member countries have the possibility to work in international projects (so called Annex). National researchers, industry and other parties can participate and benefit from the Annex results. The member country can influence on the work of the Programme, e.g., defining the topics for new activities such as research, development, and demonstration projects.

Who can join the TCP programme?

Only a country's government can participate in the TCP. This means that all people living in a member country are participants of the programme.

A government can designate a different entity to represent the country in HPT TCP by IEA (Technology Collaboration Programme on Heat Pumping Technologies by IEA) as a contracting party. This can be any national agency, public organization, private cooperation, or other entity.

For all member countries of HPT TCP, different actors such as researchers and representatives from industry, are able to participate in the international collaboration projects (Annexes). Moreover, they have access to a large network of experts engaged in this programme (TCP) or other TCPs of IEA. Here you can find the present member countries of HPT TCP and contact information to representatives from the different member countries.

The role of RISE in this network

Since 2004 RISE is the host organization for the programme office and communication center for HPT TCP by IEA – Heat Pump Centre. Thereby, we have access to a large network of experts within this TCP, as well as to other TCPs within IEA, and to the secretariat of IEA (International Energy Agency).
