Abstract

The demonstration project showed the following positive and clarifying results: a) for the current fuel oil and natural gas price level the economy of the heat pump depends on the energy saving potential of the houses; most economical is the use in business buildings with an energy consumption from 10 to 20,000 l fuel oil or m**3 natural gas. As the energy prices increase, the economy is improved for houses with a lower energy demand. b) Before the plants are launched into the market, final development work must be done. c) Further certain development work is necessary to avoid any installation errors. d) All 40 plants run satisfactorily; the targets of the demonstration project were achieved. e) The acceptance of the IC engine driven heat pump is exceptionally great.
