Dr.-Ing. Marek Miara

Coordinator Heat Pumps

Short biography

Marek Miara has a profound experience in the field of renewable energy. The focus of his work lies on the efficiency determination and evaluation of heat pump systems, rational energy use and buildings with low energy consumption. For the past 18 years, he has been working for the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE where he coordinates the heat pump activities.

In addition to national projects, he oversees international EU projects and activities in the framework of the IEA Heat Pumping Technologies; at present as an operating agent of its Annex 50. Mr. Miara is a member of normalization committees of the Association of German Engineers (VDI), board member of the German Society of Refrigeration and Air Conditioning (DKV), board member of the European Heat Pump Association (EHPA) as well as co-founder of the Polish Heat Pump Association (PORT PC). In the field of heat pumps, he published extensive technical papers and made numerous presentations in a vast number of national and international conferences.

Mr. Miara has a doctoral degree  in engineering defended at the Wroclaw University of Technology in 2014 with his PhD thesis „Assessing Efficiency of Heat Pumps. Analytic Method Integrating Ecological, Energetic and Economical aspects“. He is a graduate of the University of Kassel (2004, Master Post-graduate) in the field of Energy and Environment, Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency and of the Wroclaw University of Technology (2000, Master) in Civil Engineering.
