LCEC Publishes “Guidelines for Design and Installation of Heat Pumps in Lebanese Buildings”

The LCEC has recently published the “Guidelines for Design and Installation of Heat Pumps in Lebanese Buildings”. The document is the result of the cooperation with Politecnico di Milano (POLIMI) with the financial support of the Italian Ministry for the Environment, Land, and Sea (IMELS). The guideline offers highly specialized and concrete engineering practices of heat pump systems. LCEC encourages all qualified entities to consult this report when installing heat pumps in Lebanon.

Potential Market for Heat Pumps Technology in Lebanon

Heat pump technology could offer remarkable energy saving in the Lebanese building sector. Heat pump is a high performance technology, capable of exploiting renewable energy (e.g., from air, water, and ground) for the generation of useful heating and cooling energy. By substituting only 10% of electric boilers and heaters in existing buildings and new buildings with heat pumps technologies for hot water generation and space heating in the time frame 2021-2030, cumulative energy savings of around 70 million USD in electricity subsidies for the Lebanese government could be achieved. Heat pump projects using Italian technologies could also benefit from grants offered by the Italian Ministry for the Environment, Land, and Sea (IMELS).
