Industrial Heat Pump Market Transformation

ACEEE research has found that industrial heat pumps (IHPs) in key industrial sectors can cut the energy use associated with process heat by up to one third and enable CO2 savings of between 30-43 million tons per year. However, IHPs are not available at scale for industrial end-users. This presentation will outline ACEEE's market transformation campaign to change this; analyzing multiple points of the complex value chain, federal policy initiatives, and technical support needs to commercialize this critical technology.

Andrew Hoffmeister conducts research on industrial decarbonization for ACEEE’s industrial team. His work focuses primarily on the analysis of emerging technologies, such as industrial heat pumps, policy research at the state, federal, and international level, and the study of other prominent decarbonization pathways, including intelligent efficiency.
