The Renewable Energy Sources (RES) Directive acknowledges energy from air, water and ground as renewable.
Heat pump technology is well recognized choice to extract this portion of energy from the environment for heating purposes.
This is an important step to achieve the European targets of 20% CO2 reduction, 20% energy efficiency improvement and 20% increase in renewable energy mix by 2020.
In addition the recast of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, with the ‘nearly zero-energy building’ definition and the Ecolabel for Buildings, with a minimum percentage of renewable in the energy used by the buildings (25% for existing and 50% for new buildings) are also pointing in the same direction.
Emerson Climate Technologies is always committed to energy efficiency optimization and new technologies, and has been the first in the market to offer a complete range of highly efficient scroll compressors optimized for heat pump applications.
