Abstract

This report gives a description of the design of a large solar heating system with a heat pump and a seasonal heat storage. The system is used for the heating of a high school center and is located in Northern Italy. The building is specially designed for this application and is also equipped with passive solar systems. A building description with illustrations is given. The collectors are simple flat plate collectors and the seasonal storage uses undisturbed earth as heat storage medium. A thermal and economic analysis is presented. Though the economics do not look very good, it is estimated that further system optimization can improve this aspect.
