Heat pumps in Norway.

Author(s) : RIVENAES U.


This paper gives an outline of the successful Norwegian Heat Pump Programme that was undertaken in the period 1989-1992, at a cost of USD 3.5 million. The programme has increased the number of heat pumps in Norway, and has developed a very strong platform for further work in the field of heat pumping technologies. A new strategy plan for research, development, demonstration and promotion of heat pumping technologies has been developed for Norway for the period 1993-2000. One of the goals in the new strategy plan is that Norway wish to play a major role in an international effort to demonstrate the safe use of refrigerants with zero ODP and zero GWP in the years ahead. The Norwegian Heat Pump Programme has developed a lot of high quality educational material that could be translated to other languages to avoid duplication of effort.
