The parliamentarian was particularly focused on heat pumps during his address at the ATMO Europe Summit, warning that PFAS could undermine progress within the sector.
The October 18 event – intended for engineers and sustainability professionals – will explore decarbonization, energy savings, thermal storage, multi-level controls, and funding and incentives programs.
The 20–200kW heat pump will provide both space and hot-water heating for multi-family residential buildings, as well as smaller commercial and industrial applications.
The Heat2O provides a sustainable heating solution with a COP of up to 4.52.

CO2 heat pump will tap into heat from the northern Pacific Ocean via a glycol loop in deep gravel along the shore.
The new technology ensures that the optimal quantity of refrigerant is always available to the heat pump, says the German manufacturer.
The 65kW capacity units supply hot water up to 90°C, with a COP greater than 4.
In addition to manufacturing CO2 heat pumps for commercial and industrial applications, Fenagy is developing a new series of smaller isobutane-based heat pumps.
The ‘world’s largest supercritical heat pump system’ avoids 120,000 metric tons of CO2e emissions.
U.S. startup Harvest Thermal’s smart heat pump system is also said to reduce carbon emissions from heating and hot water production by 90% compared to gas systems.
