High Temperature Heat Pumps

In our competence center high temperature heat pumps we are researching thermal energy systems both numerically and experimentally. Industrial high-temperature heat-pumps are the main focus alongside other thermal cycles. In four teams we are answering questions regarding fluid machinery and systems engineering, thermal energy engineering, electrical energy engineering and hydrogen process engineering. We are consulting the manufacturing industry and the heat network operators on the transformation towards carbon neutrality and we are cooperating with industry to provide the necessary technologies. For that purpose we maintain large testing infrastructures.
