About Us

The European Ground Source Heat Pump Association (EGSHPA) was founded as a non-profit making association and built with the aim of communicating to the industry and consumers the benefits of a new form of renewable energy. EGSHPA is the ideal bridging point between the latest green energy technologies and the people who benefit from these developments. The association aims to provide technical and industry specific news across all EU member states, in order to overcome the challenges faced by the industry in the development of GSHP for cooling and heating applications.

The association also aims to partner and join forces with other relevant bodies that can help move the industry forward, instilling consumer confidence and delivering a compelling case for this excellent alternative energy source.

The web site was created to provide a portal to post industry news, it is interactive, reactive and a constant form of knowledge enhancement. EGSHPA aims to be the one stop reference point for those looking to break into the industry and those already working at ground level in functions from consultancy and design to installation and management. EGSHPA is providing a vibrant platform for industry news and announcements. We are constantly populating our online offering with value-driven content and now hope to forge alliances with other organistions and become a conduit for information, and general industry interaction.
