The present report describes the state of the art of high temperature industrial heat pumps and the research and development efforts related to them. Compression (open, as well as closed cycle) systems and absorption heat pumps (including transformers) are considered. This description is based upon literature studies performed by a team of researchers from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium. The research team also analysed the economics of heat pumps of different types under present economic conditions. The heat pumps were compared with conventional heating systems.
