The European Heat Pump Association LogoEuropean Heat Pump Association
The European Heat Pump Association, founded in February 2000, is a not-for-profit organisation which promotes awareness and proper deployment of heat pump technology in the European market place for residential, commercial and industrial applications. The Association is primarily for all legally constituted organisations in the European Union. Organisations in the European Free Trade Association and aspirant states to the European Union may become associate members.

The GeoExchange LogoGeoExchange
The Geothermal Heat Pump Consortium (GHPC), a non-profit organization created in 1994, has as its mission implementing the National Earth Comfort Program. The Earth Comfort Program is a collaborative effort between the US Department of Energy, the US Environmental Protection Agency, and private sector organizations interested in promoting the growth of energy-efficient, environmentally friendly heating and cooling technology.

The transfer of technological information to consultants, developers, potential users, and the general public is an important element in the development of direct heat utilization of geothermal energy. The Geo-Heat Centre's resources are available to the public, through United States Department of Energy (USDOE) grants. Information developed through firsthand experience with hundreds of projects and through extensive research is provided to individuals, organizations or companies involved in geothermal development.

With the experience and dedication of its diverse, international membership bolstering a 30-year track record, the Geothermal Resources Council (GRC) has built a solid reputation as one of the world's premier geothermal associations. The GRC serves as a focal point for continuing professional development for its members through its outreach, information transfer and education services.

The Groundswell LogoGroundswell
The underground newsletter of the UK Ground Coupled Heating & Cooling Community. This informal newsletter is intended to provide a focus for all UK activity on ground coupled, water source heating and cooling technology for buildings. This is variously referred to as earth coupled systems, geothermal heat pumps, earth energy systems, closed loop ground source heat pumps etc.

The International Geothermal Association (IGA), founded in 1988, is a scientific, educational and cultural organization established to operate worldwide. It has more than 2000 members in 65 countries. The IGA is a non-political, non-profit, non-governmental organization in special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations, and Partner of the European Union for the Campaign for Take Off (CTO) the Renewable Energy.

IGSHPA's new and improved home on the Web, features more information and enhanced functions for members. And it's still a great place to learn about geothermal heat pumps. Regardless of your current level of understanding of this exciting climate control technology, you are sure to find something here to interest you.

The National Energy Foundation LogoNational Energy Foundation
The National Energy Foundation (NEF) is an independent educational charity based at Milton Keynes and controlled by an eminent Board of Trustees. It was established in 1988 to work for the more efficient, innovative and safe use of energy and to increase public awareness of energy in all its aspects. The Foundation encourages the development of renewable energy and energy efficiency, through specific education and information programmes, the development of energy policy, establishing infrastructure for the UK's sustainable energy sector and by providing consultancy services. The Foundation focuses on domestic, SME and community scale technologies, with an emphasis on successfully integrating renewables with energy efficient technologies.

The The Heat Pump Association (HPA) LogoThe Heat Pump Association (HPA)
The Heat Pump Association (HPA) is the UK's leading authority on the use and benefits of heat pump technology and includes many of the country's leading manufacturers of heat pumps, components and associated equipment. The Association influences legislation and other matters that affect the interests of either the industry in general, or its members in particular. In addition, the HPA co-ordinates technical and market research into areas of mutual interest, identified by members with the aim of improving market opportunities for members, at home and abroad.

The UK Heat Pump Network LogoUK Heat Pump Network
The UK Heat Pump Network was launched in July 1999 to help the UK heat pump market develop according to best practice on environmental and economic grounds. Through the UK Network, Government is working in partnership with manufacturers, specifiers, and user groups to develop independent and authoritative advice on the application and use of heat pumps. Government backing is via the DTI and DEFRA, with industrial support via the Heat Pump Association.
