Heat pumps in Vienna – a heat pump promotion stategy in a fast growing city

Cities all over the world are growing and they currently cause 75 % of the CO2 emissions. In the future, Vienna wants to reduce the use of fossils – which are enormously contributing to climate and causing immense consequential costs. Unfortunately the use of renewable energy in the densely-built city is still not state-of the-art (as it is currently for the most parts in the rural areas in Austria). But in the predictable future, the heat pump technology will provide new possibilities, also for the densely built city.
