Call for papers for the 2nd IGSHPA Research Track

Sep. 13, 2017 | Sweden, Second Biennial Conference

The International Ground Source Heat Pump Association is pleased to invite you to the second IGSHPA Research Track, hosted by IGSHPA Sweden and the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. After the success of the IGSHPA Research Track in Denver in March 2017, you can continue being part of this initiative by presenting your research at the upcoming conference in Stockholm. In addition to presenting your research, you will be able to see state-of-the-art technology and network with other experts and industry leaders. Like the first research track, all papers accepted for the conference will be published in a freely accessible online archive.

The 2017 Research Track papers are available here.
