Annex 40 - Heat Pump Concepts for Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings


  • Evaluation of concepts for buildings in order to reach a nearly Zero Energy consumption applying heat pumps as core component of the building technology
  • Evaluation of building technology in nearly Zero Energy Buildings (nZEB) regarding performance and cost
  • Further developments of current marketable heat pumps to exploit specific performance opportunities in nZEB
  • Field monitoring to evaluate the real performance of heat pumps in nZEB and to identify optimization potentials and options for demand response
