THE OUTCOMES AND LESSONS LEARNED FROM THE WIDESCALE MONITORING CAMPAIGN OF HEAT PUMPS IN FAMILY DWELLINGS IN GERMANY


Since 2006 Fraunhofer ISE in Freiburg, Germany, has been investigating electric heat pumps in single-family dwellings. Within three projects nearly 250 air-to-water and brine-to-water heat pumps system have been investigated under real operating conditions in houses with various energetic standards (from low-energy to un-retrofitted stock buildings
with high energy demand).
