The further development of heat pumps is making energy costs more affordable

4th Federal Heat Pump Conference at the leading trade fair RENEXPO® in Augsburg

Rising costs in energy are causing a rising demand for a more affordable energy supply. Due to newest technology, heat pumps can now be used even more efficient for different utilizations and needs. No matter, if in large buildings or within the renovation of buildings in order to make them more energy efficient. With 25% supplied energy the heat pump produces 100% heating power, and is therefore the system for cost-conscious and environmentally friendly heating. And furthermore: heat pumps can even be used meaningfully for cooling.


This can be achieved through so called quiet-cooling", that uses relatively cold heat sources (ground, ground water), to cool heater loops, in order to air-condition rooms. However, when heating the importance of the efficiency of a heat pump system is the low temperature difference between heat source (earth, ground water, air) and the heat sink (heater loops).

The smaller the temperature difference, the less electricity the heat pump needs to heat. Floor heating is not necessarily required for the operation of a heat pump.

Further detailed information about the mode of operation and operational areas of heating pumps are available at the 4th Federal Heat Pump Conference on Thursday, October 9th, 2008 in Augsburg. Recognized experts from science, practice and politics, will illustrate in lectures, current issues and things worth knowing, all about heating pumps. Among others, lectures will also be held on matters of general political frameworks, insulation and gas heating pumps. The complete congress-agenda can be downloaded on: www.renexpo.de , as of July.

The Bundesverband Wrmepumpe e.V. who has been informing politics, press and media about the current state of heating pump technology and their great environmental advantage since 1992 is a partner of the congress. More information can be found on www.waermepumpe.de

The Federal Heat Pump Conference", is an event by the special exhibition Heat Pump World" within the leading trade fair RENEXPO® in Augsburg. We are satisfied with this development. Just under 40 well known manufacturers such as: Alpha-InnoTec, BARTL Heating Pumps, IDM Energysystems, Bosch Thermotechnology, Novelan, Ochsener Heating pumps, STIEBEL ELTRON, and Viessmann have been booked as exhibitors for Heat Pump World alone. "We are excited about the interest shown in this growing market.", says Gnter Armbruster, marketing manager of REECO GmbH.

With 8 subject areas in total, RENEXPO® is THE internationally recognized trade fair for renewable energy and energy efficient building and renovating. This year from October 9th to October 12th, it is being held for the ninth time already. In addition to the fair and the congress, visitors are offered a varied lecture-series free of cost.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
