Fuel-driven sorption heat pumps

The official end date of Annex 43 is 31/12/2018. Compilation of the final report is ongoing.


The scope of the work of this Annex will cover the use of fuel-driven sorption heat pumps in domestic and small commercial or industrial buildings applications. If appropriate, the additional possibility of supplying cooling will also be considered.


    • Field test of different fuel driven heat pumps
    • Compare different system configurations e.g. different sources
    • Evaluate different technologies for different applications e.g. retrofit versus new buildings
    • Classification of system schemes, generic system layout
    • Potential study, roadmap
