Solar and Heat Pump Systems
February 2014 - PDF 0.25MB
Combining solar and heat pump technologies is relevant in several aspects: a high renewable fraction can be achieved (solar + the heat pump heat source) and the safety of the solution makes it a good choice for many homeowners. The solar heat can help enhance the performance of the heat pump by raising the evaporation temperature. And the solar heat can be stored at low temperatures (0-80° C) thus making good use of the collectors even during the cold season, cloudy days or at night. A good use of the latent heat of water changed into ice around 0° C can also be achieved.

Combining solar and heat pump technologies is relevant in several aspects: a high renewable fraction can be achieved, the flexibility of the solution makes it a good choice for many homeowners, the solar heat can help enhance the performance of the heat pump by raising the evaporation temperature, the solar heat can be stored at low temperature (0-20 C) thus making good use of the collectors even during the cold season, cloudy days or at night, and a good use of the latent heat of 1 m3 of water
changed into ice.
