You may have noticed a theme: CORE is a big fan of heat pumps, a technology born of refrigeration science. They can have a powerful impact on energy and carbon emissions. Hybrid electric water heaters use a heat pump to gain dramatic increases in energy efficiency. Rather than create hot water from electricity or gas, these units collect heat from the surrounding air and transfer it into a storage tank for later use. As long as the air has a useful amount of heat in it, these units are extremely efficient: up to four times more efficient than a traditional electric water heater.
