Power-2-Heat Transformation Cost Calculator

This tool compares climate-friendly heat pumps and electric boilers with conventional gas boilers and cogeneration systems in industry.

About this tool

This transformation cost calculator provides a tool to compare the costs of climate-friendly production of industrial process heat by heat pumps and electric electrode boilers with a conventional natural gas-based process.

The overarching goals are:

  • Identifying and quantifying the costs of climate-friendly production of industrial heat and comparing it to conventional processes.
  • Defining a tool to support the assessment and discussion of specific projects and policy instruments.
  • Creating a transparent basis for discussing the costs and benefits of transforming a production facility.

Its use for the assessment of specific projects is possible under the own responsibility of the parties involved, but it cannot replace a specific investment analysis.
