Heat Pumps and Thermal Storage: Canadian Perspectives

Heat pump and thermal storage systems can support an increased adoption of heat pumps by providing a more flexible link between the building and electrical grid. This article explores the development of these systems from a Canadian perspective, outlining key design requirements, presenting potential system solutions, and examining demand reduction potential through initial simulations. Findings provide an important basis for ongoing research to better adapt these systems to the Canadian climate and market.
