Heat pump systems with ammonia as refrigerant.

Author(s) : HALOZAN H.


Presently, about 150 million heat pumps with a thermal output of 1800 TWh/a are in operation worldwide, reducing CO2 emissions by about 0.18 Gt/a. The potential for reducing CO2 emissions assuming a 30% share in the building sector using technology presently available is about 6% of the total worldwide CO2 emissions of 24 Gt/a. With future technologies up to 16% seem possible. Therefore, heat pumps are one of the key technologies for energy conservation and reducing CO2 emissions.
