VERA – ACCELERATION ENERGY TRANSITION REALIZATION APPROACH

Heat pump technology has a lot of potential. For instance to reduce energy-use, promote electrification, and stimulate circularity in industrial processes. However, the success of industrial heat pump technology strongly depends on how well its innovation system develops.

The Vera project aims to identify ways to improve the conditions for further development and implementation of industrial heat pumps in the Netherlands. It does so by analyzing its Technological Innovation System (TIS). As a result, it analyzes how well seven key processes are fulfilled and which problems are inhibiting TIS performance.

In addition, the project formulates interventions that increase TIS performance, consequently contributing to further development and implementation of industrial heat humps in the Netherlands.
