Heat pump award


The Danish Municipality of Viborg was named Heat Pump City of the Year for 2014 by the European Heat Pump Forum (EHPA).

This honour was based partly on a heat pump solution supplied and installed by ICS at the Bjerringbro Energicentral district heating plant. 

The following press release was issued in connection with the award: 


VIBORG Municipality-Bjerringbro is the Heat Pump City of the Year

After an intense and very successful public online vote, Viborg municipality-Bjerringbro was elected as the new Heat Pump City of the Year. So, similar to the very first edition in 2011, the 2014 winner is a city in Denmark.

The project was jointly presented by Viborg municipality, Bjerringbro Varmeværk (the local district heating plant) and Grundfos.

It represents a great example of heating and cooling heat pumps and a good model of cohesion in the local society as it ties together the company to the local community.

Viborg Municipality-Bjerringbro will be awarded during a networking event in Berlin on the 19th of May one day before the 7th edition of the EHPA European Heat Pump Forum.
