Over the past few years, systems that combine solar thermal technology and heat pumps have been marketed to heat houses and produce domestic hot water. This new combination of technologies is a welcome advancement, but standards and norms are still required for its long term successful commercialization. Such combinations are complex and need more control strategies and electronics than separate configurations. Therefore the optimisation of the combination is more complex and the cost effectiveness of the combination is not obvious.

This newsletter presents the effort made in classifying Solar and Heat Pumps systems made by Task 44 / Annex 38. A uniform SHP system representation has been presented and a guide line in developing it is shown. This energy flow chart can be applied to any other space heating or DHW generation systems and a direct comparison can be derived. Finally, the framework for the performance figure calculation is presented.
