Semi-virtual dynamic tests of hybrid systems coupling solar thermal and PV panels with Heat Pumps

Abstract : Despite the huge primary energy consumption associated with heating and cooling (H&C) demand in EU building stock, the share of installed renewable H&C solutions is still marginal (i.e. 5%). In order to speed up a transition towards the widespread application of renewable H&C in buildings, innovative solutions must be designed to compete against traditional solutions. SunHorizon project aims to unlock the potential for a user-friendly and cost-effective solution based on an optimized design and combination of commercial innovative solar technologies (thermal or/and PV) and Heat Pumps (HP). This paper aims to present how are performing experimentally two hybrid concepts, out of four in the whole project, that are coupling solar thermal and PV panels with heat pumps to satisfy thermal and electricity energy demand of residential buildings in Riga (Latvia) and Piera (Spain). Following hardware-in-the-loop approach, specific short test sequences are developed first for each of the two Technology Packages (TP) that allow for extrapolation of the measurements to annual seasonal performance figures including electricity self-consumption in addition to renewable heating and cooling indicators.
