Johnson Controls (NYSE: JCI) Provide Decarbonization at Vattenfall Berlin Power Plant

Johnson Controls International plc (NYSE: JCI) has announced the commissioning of a new heat pump installation to help European energy company Vattenfall achieve its goal of eliminating carbon emissions from its heating and power generation facilities by 2050. Heat pumps are regarded as a critical technology in the European Union’s Green Deal plans for a sustainable, low-carbon economy, and with energy prices at an all-time high, their ability to provide heating and cooling without the use of additional natural gas is now critical.

This project uses heat pumps to satisfy energy needs while reducing waste, emissions, and costs. Importantly, heat pumps provide necessary heating without the use of additional gas supplies. JCI is proud to be a part of Germany’s energy transition, and this project allows it to put its large heat pumps to work and provide energy, environmental, and security solutions.

Furthermore, Johnson Controls’ green technology will contribute to Germany’s ‘Energiewende’ and increase energy security. Johnson Controls’ Industrial Refrigeration division installed its proven Sabroe heat pump technology with a heating capacity of 700 kW at Vattenfall Europe Wärme AG’s Berlin-Buch combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Berlin, Germany. To generate heat for the local district heating network, the CHP plant currently employs a heat recovery boiler that captures waste heat from an existing gas turbine.

The addition of the heat pump will increase the plant’s district heating capacity without using any additional fossil fuel, making a contribution to energy security, and ignoring the production of approximately 620 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year.
