The organizing committee for the8th IEA International Heat Pump Conferenceannounced two workshops that will be held in conjunction with the conference. These workshops, which will be held on May 30, 2005, at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, will discuss work underway or planned in two IEA heat pump technology international projects.

The first, which will be held at 8:30 a.m., will be devoted to test procedures and seasonal performance calculation methods for integrated HVACR appliances (e.g. water heating heat pumps). Participants in IEA Annex 28 will discuss work underway and proposed methodology for assessing performance of such appliances. Carsten Wemh
