About the Conference

Energy and the environment – two topics that are always of great concern to human beings. Heating and cooling play a great role in our daily life, we use a tremendous amount of fossil fuels for heating and cooling. When changing temperature levels using substantial energy input, a heat pump is always recommended as promising technologies against climate change.

With this in mind, the 13th IEA Heat Pump Conference was hold in Jeju Island from Monday, May 11th through Thursday, May 14th in 2020. With the theme ‘Heat Pumps – Mission for the Green World’, we aimed to address global climate change and discuss necessary actions.

Considering the varied applications of heat pump systems in the residential, building and industrial fields, this major conference with hundreds of participants definitely broad the horizons of our heat pump community. The theme, “Heat Pumps – Mission for the Green World”, made all the researchers proud we really are creating a Green World together through research and development for a better future.

Conference Goal

Heat pumps, as a reliable and confirmed technology, is the key equipment for energy savings and greenhouse gas reductions with its wide range of application to various energy sources. The upcoming conference will serve as a forum to discuss the latest technologies in heat pumps, and exchange valuable knowledge in market, policy, and standards information on related technologies. Exhibitions will be held at the conference, to share products and technologies from domestic and foreign companies.
