It has been discovered long ago that geothermal energy can be used to substitute various types of fossil fuels. Heat pumps are devices that can transfer the earth’s thermal energy from a cooler to a warmer space. Their deployment would not only benefit large companies but could even reduce the everyday costs of individuals. Among their many advantages, possibly the most important one is that it is environmentally friendly. Their power demand can ideally be satisfied using other renewable energy sources. In this article, the current situation of heat pumps and geothermal energy in Hungary, Sweden and Germany are examined including incentives and grants. Afterwards, the current situation and operation of hybrid systems in Sweden and Egypt are studied.
