- This initiative will showcase both company’s commitment to eco-friendly solutions
UAA and LG Electronics have formed the Consortium for Advanced Heat Pump Research.
This agreement will be helpful in driving market transformation through research on heat pump technology and electrification.
The consortium’s research endeavours are anticipated to have a significant worldwide influence, setting fresh standards for energy efficiency and sustainability. This initiative will showcase LG’s HVAC product proficiency in both heating and cooling, emphasizing their commitment to eco-friendly solutions.
“The Consortium for Advanced Heat Pump Research will raise the bar and push the limits of the high-performance, high-capacity heat pump industry,” said James Lee, global president of the LG Electronics Air Solutions business unit. “Results from the joint research will be used in North America and Europe to help shape the future of the HVAC industry.”
Lee also said that Alaska is the perfect place to do this research “both for the opportunity to work closely with the talented UAA engineering faculty and graduate students and because of the state’s extreme temperatures.”
“This cutting-edge consortium sets the stage for a new era of electrification, enabled by heat pump innovations as well as energy storage systems and smart appliances. Working with the University of Alaska will further accelerate LG’s efforts to drive market transformation supporting the decarbonization of buildings throughout North America and around the world,” says LG Electronics North America CEO Thomas Yoon.
