In the world increasingly focused on using electrical energy as a main energy source, power to heat (P2H or PtH) is a term used to generally describe a process of heating performed thanks to the electricity. It is also an increasingly important term in the context of climate change and mitigating carbon emissions (decarbonization). Most of the current developed economies are facing two parallel challenges: how to manage in the most efficient way the quick growth of electrical energy sources, and the fast development of industrial production facilities that require growing amounts of heat.
Power to heat is addressing both of these issues. On one hand, it allows using renewable energy, which price is increasingly attractive. On the other hand, it enters the areas of industrial activities, when the request for industrial heating is growing equally fast as the need to generate the heating in a climate friendly way.
