Sustainable and optimal air to air heat pumps – an ongoing innovative evaluation:
In Europe, the building sector is responsible for 40% of the total energy consumption and represents about a third of Europe’s CO2 emissions. Although the energy renovation of existing buildings could help to achieve the EU climate and energy targets, the refurbishment rate is currently below 1% and renewables are not widely used in the building sector. Innovative energy systems with low-temperature heating and high-temperature cooling are suggested in the project. As the air-air heat pump is very efficient and economical during most of the heating season, we study its application in combination with additional energy sources.
