On behalf of the United States National Organizing Committee (NOC), I warmly welcome you to participate in the 14th IEA Heat Pump Conference, to be held in the beautiful city of Chicago, 15-18 May 2023.  The United States looks forward to hosting the conference, with the theme, “Heat Pumps – Resilient and Efficient”.

This event is the world’s premier event where industry and researchers go to discuss the latest advancements in the field of heat pumps. The National Organizing Committee (NOC) is working hard to plan and organize an exciting conference program, including a technical program, workshops, technical tours and social activities.  The NOC greatly appreciates the assistance provided by the International Organizing Committee (IOC) as we plan this stimulating event.  We highly encourage researchers, policy makers, representatives from utilities and the public sector, manufacturers, and designers to present their most recent and novel developments in heat pumping technologies.

The Chicago conference will be the 14th in a series of triennial conferences.  Previous conferences were held in Graz, Austria (1984), Orlando, USA (1987), Tokyo, Japan (1990), Maastricht, the Netherlands (1993), Toronto, Canada (1996), Berlin, Germany (1999), Beijing, China (2002), Las Vegas, USA (2005), Zurich, Switzerland (2008), Tokyo, Japan (2011), Montreal, Canada (2014), Rotterdam, the Netherlands (2017), and Jeju, Korea (2021).
