Heat-pump-centered integrated community energy systems. Final report

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Heat-pump-centered integrated community energy systems (HP-ICES) are energy systems for communities which provide heating, cooling and/or other thermal energy services through the use of heat pumps. Since heat pumps primarily transfer energy from existing and otherwise probably unused sources, rather than convert it from electrical or chemical to thermal form, HP-ICES offer significant potential for energy savings. By powering these heat pumps with nonscarce fuels, the use of which would be impractical in most conventional systems, less-abundant fuels including natural gas and oil can be conserved. Secondary benefits of HP-ICES include reduction of adverse environmental effects as compared to conventional ... continued below

Description

Heat-pump-centered integrated community energy systems (HP-ICES) are energy systems for communities which provide heating, cooling and/or other thermal energy services through the use of heat pumps. Since heat pumps primarily transfer energy from existing and otherwise probably unused sources, rather than convert it from electrical or chemical to thermal form, HP-ICES offer significant potential for energy savings. By powering these heat pumps with nonscarce fuels, the use of which would be impractical in most conventional systems, less-abundant fuels including natural gas and oil can be conserved. Secondary benefits of HP-ICES include reduction of adverse environmental effects as compared to conventional systems, reliable production of services in contrast to the increasingly frequent utility curtailments and interruptions, and delivery of services to consumers at costs lower than those for conventional systems (including acquisition, operation, and maintenance costs). The objective of this multiphase HP-ICES project is development and demonstration of concepts leading to one or more operational systems by the end of 1984. The findings from the System Development Phase of the program are reported. Information is included on the HP-ICES concept; its application potential; variations in the basic HP-ICES concept which could lead to improved performance; applications of the concept to specific communities; design; economics; environmental impacts; and component testing requirements.
