EHPA state position as F-Gas regulation review takes place

The European Heat Pump Association (EHPA) has released a position paper before tomorrow’s meeting of environment attachés of the Member States to discuss the F-gas Regulation review.

The meeting’s focus will be mostly on the ban of pre-charged equipment, and the EHPA has provided the following input.

“The EHPA, as the representative of the European heat pump industry, welcomes the efforts of the Council members to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere. However, it still has some concerns on the current Council text.

The European Heat Pump Association

1. Rejects the ban on pre-charged equipment (Art. 12) and suggests to include all F-gases (in bulk and pre-charged) in the phase down instead;

2. Calls for an efficient tracking system of all F-gases (quotas) placed on the EU market;

3. Encourages the distribution of placing-on-the-market quotas via a market-based system to ensure cost-efficient availability of F-gases within the phase down trajectory;

4. Re-iterates that heat pumps are a contributor to more energy efficiency, more RES and less CO2 emissions and should be protected against any further burden in order to unleash their potential.”
