Heat pump systems for multifamily buildings: which resource for what demand?

Defense date2017-03-31
Abstract

This work analyses, from an energy performance point of view, the potential and constraints of heat pump (HP) heating systems in new and existing multifamily (MF) buildings. It starts by a monitored case study of an innovative solar and HP system implemented in a new MF building. Then, and via numerical simulation, the potential of this particular system is analysed for 6 different MF building heat demands, followed by a comparative analysis of the potentials and constraints of 6 different heat sources for those building demands. Finally, the potential impact of a generalised development of these types of systems in Geneva's MF building stock is discussed in terms of annual electricity consumption and daily peak loads.
