The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

In 2012 the Austrian Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology and the Austrian Climate and Energy Fund launched the publication series “energy innovation austria”. These publications (published four times a year) provide insight into the Austrian energy research and present new concepts and innovative products in the field of forward-looking energy technologies. The articles are based on research projects funded by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology and the Climate and Energy Fund.

In order to increase the renewable energy share of the heating energy used in Germany, the market incentive programme for renewable energy sources for heating was revised, updated and improved. It now includes incentives for building owners, industry and municipalities in respect to solar thermal systems, biomass heating systems, heat pumps, deep geothermal plants and local district heating systems. Financial support can be given in two ways: subsidies for smaller systems and loans, at reduced rates, for bigger systems.

This French guide provides typical diagrams for the indoor hydronic circuit and the control strategy of systems with air to water (or water to water) heat pumps that are used for heating and domestic hot water production in new or renovated houses.A first chapter provides rules in order to optimise the operation of the heat pump.Seven typical diagram families are then proposed, each of them including different options.

This report from the French Programme "Règles de l'Art Grenelle Environnement 2012" describes the operation of air to water heat pumps that include a control of the compressor motor speed (inverter technology), in order to adapt the heat output to the actual needs.Information is given about the energy performance of these appliances, based on some laboratory tests.This allows for discussion about the optimal sizing of such heat generators to cover building heating needs, compared to heat pumps with an on/off control strategy.

These French professional rules concern building systems with air to water heat pumps (<50 kW) that are used for heating in renovated houses.The rules include three parts in three separate documents:- The first part (89 pages) describes rules for designing and dimensioning the heating system (heat pump, auxiliary heating source, hydronic circuit, heat emitters, controls). Heat emitters may be hot water radiators, heated floor or fan coil units.- The second part (103 pages) describes rules for installation and commissioning of the system.
