Estimation des économies d’énergie obtenues avec les pompes à chaleur

L'ensemble des pompes à chaleur installées en Europe en 2014 ont permis d'économiser 10,42 TWh en énergie finale et 4,7 TWh en énergie primaire.
Comparing the energy demand of heat pumps with the best available alternative – gas condensing boilers – would lead to an increase in energy demand. All heat pumps installed in 2014 have saved 10.42 TWh of final and 4.7 TWh of primary energy. The stock of heat pump units in operation across Europe by 2014 saved 109.31 TWh of final and 51.7 TWh of primary energy. For comparison: In 2012, Germany produced 46 TWh of electricity from wind.

 If heat pumps can save energy, they also save emissions. Based on the sales volume 2014, 2.09 Mt of CO2 emissions were avoided. The whole stock of installed heat pumps saved 22.07 Mt of CO2 emissions. This is almost the amount of CO2 emitted by Croatia in 2010 (20.9 Mt).
