Organizing Committee

The High-Temperature Heat Pump Symposium is organized by SINTEF, the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and Danish Technological Institute (DTI) supported by the European Heat Pump Association (EHPA).

Danish Technological Institute (DTI)

Danish Technological Institute (DTI) is involved in terms of Heat Pump and Refrigeration Technology, which is part of the division for Energy and Climate.

Danish Technological Institute is a leading research and technology company with more 1,000 employees. DTI helps in excess of 10,000 customers a year – representing 65 different countries.

DTI aims at creating value for Danish society and industry. DTI considers heat pumps as key components of a renewable-based energy system and at the heart of future energy systems without fossil fuels. The strategic focus of DTI is to develop and demonstrate the use of heat pump technology in new applications and temperature areas such as temperatures above 100 °C. The development and demonstration are done through close cooperation with leading technology providers, mainly from Denmark, which will ensure the consolidation of the technology in future commercial projects and products.


SINTEF is involved in terms of Thermal Energy, which is a part of the unit SINTEF Energy Research.

SINTEF is one of Europes's largest independent research organisations with expertise in the fields of technology, the natural sciences, medicine, and the social sciences.

SINTEF's primary task is to create value and solutions for Norwegian industry and society. With more than 60 years' experience within research and development of heat pump technology, the Norwegian research institute has an extensive and versatile competence in the development of heat pump technology. The focus areas are, therefore, thermal insulation, sustainable heat pump technology based on natural working fluids, trans-critical processes, compact heat exchangers, compressors, and high temperature heat pumps. Knowledge and development of heat pumps are developed through a balance of theoretical considerations, numerical models, and experimental investigations.

The Technical University of Denmark (DTU)

The Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is involved in terms of the section for Thermal Energy, which is part of the Department of Mechanical Engineering.

DTU Mechanical Engineering conducts teaching and research in basic mechanics, advanced design tools, product development, energy systems, coastal hydrodynamics, and marine technology. The main activities of the section of thermal energy are research and education within thermal energy systems, including refrigeration and heat pump systems, process integration, heat transfer, combustion technologies, integrated energy system, power cycles and integration of biomass processes.

DTU Mechanical Engineering is an internationally renowned research institution with a strong focus on sustainability. The section of Thermal Energy is acknowledged for their expertise in modelling of heat pump and refrigeration systems, energy systems, and industrial processes. The strategy of DTU MEK TES comprises the decarbonization of heating processes of all kinds, which places a strong focus on industrial process heat demand.
