Abstract: Since climate change has been recognized as one of the most important challenges of this century, technical solutions are expected to take up this challenge. In this paper, heat powered energy related techniques based on sorption which could strongly contribute to reduce global warming are reviewed. High potential of emission saving exists through: Use of distributed poly-generation units including high electric efficiency cogeneration devices and heat powered sorption units (chillers, heat pumps, storage, etc.) Renunciation to boilers and electric resistances for space heating and their replacement by (heat powered sorption) heat pumps Heat powered CO2 capture through sorption The impact of energy rating as well as of incentives for the penetration of those new techniques is briefly discussed.
