About the organisers:

The Large Scale Heat Pump Forum is mutually hosted by the Austrian, Swiss and German national heat pump associations and circulates among these countries every year.

The Association Heat Pump Austria (WPA) is an industry association based in Linz, which covers the entire value chain. The association was established in spring 2012 through the merger of the former “Bundesverband Wärmepumpe” and the “Leistungsungsgemeinschaft Wärmepumpe”.

The Swiss Association of Heat Pumps (FWS) promotes clean heat from renewable environmental energy with heat pumps.  The FWS was founded in 1993 on the initiative of the Swiss Federal Office of Energy. It includes all important organisations and groups that are active in Switzerland in the heat pump sector. Together, the FWS members pursue the goal of exploiting the great potential of the heat pump in Switzerland with coordinated activities and with high-quality products and services.

The Federal Association of Heat Pump (BWP) is an association of about 500 members based in Berlin. It stands for a professional advocacy of companies along the entire value chain in connection with heat pumps. These include the German heat pump industry (manufacturers / distributors), energy supply companies, drilling and supply companies, skilled tradesmen SHK + Elektro, energy consultants, planners, experts, architects, associations and prefabricated house manufacturers. The market penetration of heat pump technology is the prime objective of BWP.
