In Subtask A of the joint IEA Solar Heating and Cooling Programme Task 44 and Heat Pump Programme Annex 38, different concepts for solar and heat pump heating systems are evaluated based on annual system simulations. This report gives an overview on dissemination activities in relation to Subtask A "Solutions and Generic Systems”. These dissemination activities include: - 19 conference papers - 5 reports - 6 undergraduate theses - 8 (reviewed and non-reviewed) journal papers - 10 presentations that were not connected to a conference / conference paper

Solar heat pump systems seen as a combination of a solar thermal collector and a compression heat pump already entered the market with more than 130 systems offered. The aim of this report is to collect, to describe and to analyze these currently (2009-2011) available systems. The undertaken survey on more than 80 companies mostly in Europe shows that most of the systems are used for a combined production of domestic hot water and heat for the space heating circuit. A new classification scheme is proposed and market available solar and heat pump systems are analyzed and classified. This report is free for distribution.
