Our Goal within the NEFI Technology Talks

The global innovation landscape offers an excellent basis for the development of innovative solutions to achieve the desired climate goals. Since numerous research projects on the use of new sustainable technologies are in full swing, we now want to take the next step: At the NEFI Technology Talks, national and international efforts in the context of selected industrial decarbonization topics are brought together, findings and results are synthesized and synergies are formed in order to use them for further developments and to drive them forward.

Heat pumps are a key technology for decarbonising the industrial sector. High-temperature heat pumps play an important role for industry as there is a high demand for thermal energy at temperatures above 100°C. Several products are already available on the market and it is important to implement them.

This NEFI Technology Talk provides insights into the topic of high-temperature heat pumps, including an overview of available products on the market and concrete application examples. The presentation is conducted in collaboration with the IEA HPT Annex 58.

Join us and our experts in discussing this important topic!
