Heat pumps are efficient in the production of heat, but unlike photovoltaics or wind turbines, they require the input of electrical energy to operate. If the electricity is produced from fossil fuels, the high operating efficiency of the heat pump should be set off against the low generation efficiency of the power plant. Is the use of heat pumps considered as forming part of a member state's requirements to use alternative energy? If so, how is this energy quantified?
