Chillventa – eSpecial for energy efficiency, heat pumps and refrigeration

The trade fair was held in a virtual format as Chillventa eSpecial.

Heat pumps are a research focus of Fraunhofer ISE in the field of heat and cold supply. Our researchers are working on various issues for heat pumps to fulfill their role as the central heating technology of the future energy system. These include various aspects related to the optimization of materials, components, design, quality assurance and system integration of heat pumps. 

All talks are now available for download. Please feel free to get in touch with the speakers, if you have any inquiries.
