In 2015, the European heat pump market grew by 10%, (resulting in a record year with 880 179 units sold) contributing to 24 Mt of CO2 emission savings and the creation of 47 103 full time jobs. These latest figures were released today by the European Heat Pump Association (EHPA) at the occasion of its traditional summer press cocktail.
Success is on air
This growth is mainly driven by the strong segment of air-sourced heat pumps, a renewable technology that finds
increasing attention in European and national statistics, according to EPHA. Geographically, most of the growth can be attributed to increased sales in the Mediterranean countries Spain (+15%), Italy (+20%) and France (+8%).
