Vapor Compression Heat Pumps and District Thermal Energy Networks for efficient Building Heating and Cooling

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter presents a case for district heating (and cooling). It demonstrates the benefits of reduced temperatures in district heating networks to reduce losses but also illustrates the need for temperature upgrading where building heating systems require higher temperatures. Thus, a novel heat pump was developed and successfully tested.
