Final Report – Part 6 Annex 55: Comfort & Climate Box – towards better integration of heat pumps and storage

The Comfort Climate Box (CCB) is defined within the scope of this Annex as “an integrated system consisting of a heat
pump and a storage together with an optimized control”. The ultimate goal of the Annex is to speed up the development
of CCBs and to bring CCBs closer to the consumer market, focusing on the optimal integration of the CCB components,
that can reach their best performance when optimized together for specific tasks.
Given that the CCB is an assembly of components/systems with different features, it is here critically evaluated how it is possible to assess the CCB performance taking all the aspects into consideration and it is analysed if existing standards can cover the integration of components in the CCB.
