Indoor Climate Solution of tomorrow for Residential Buildings
Samsung, has published its latest whitepaper report on ‘The Indoor Climate Solution of tomorrow for Residential Buildings’ and discusses how the use of heat pumps and smart solutions can create a sustainable heating and cooling system in order to achieve a climate-neutral-economy by 2050.
Key findings from the report found that 85 % of airborne respirable particulate pollution is generated by burning of fossil fuels and contributes to 7 million premature deaths worldwide every year. One of the key challenges of the twenty-first century is mitigating climate change, and energy production stands at the core of this challenge.
Driven by the ambition of the European Union to make a climate-neutral-economy a reality by 2050, the report has identified how heating in buildings needs to be reviewed, revised, and integrated with digitalisation. Samsung supports this ambition with its Eco Heating System EHS and the wider Samsung offering in relation to achieving a climate-neutral-economy. The report details how 75 % of the energy used by a heat pump is renewable, making it a very sustainable energy solution.
Furthermore, the use of heat pumps could bring about a reduction of approximately 1.8 billion tonnes of CO₂ within Europe. Statistics within the report show a steady and rising growth in the demand for and sale of heat pumps. In 2019, year-on-year heat pump sales of all hydronic forms increased 4.5 % to an estimated 2.7 million units. The global picture shows that this growth is assisted predominantly by accelerating demand across Europe, where tighter building standards-related regulations are driving this market need.
