New ways of combining Heat Pumps and District Heating

In the Swedish research project Heat Pumps in District Heating Systems new combinations of heat pumps and district
heating systems have been investigated. The project group has looked into three different way to combine heat
pumps and district heating. Firstly, focusing on the combination of heat pumps and district heating in the manufacturing
industry, secondly, hybrid heat pumps with the possibility to alternate between a heat pump and district
heating depending on the energy prices, and thirdly, the combination of low temperature district heating and heat
pumps for production of domestic hot water.
