Abstract

Contract No. EE-205-80-DE carried out in the framework of the demonstration programme energy saving and alternative energy resources by Energietechnik Essen demonstrates novel absorber-type heat exchangers using environmental heat for room heating purposes. Together with electrically driven heat pumps the absorber-type heat exchangers constitute heat supply systems fuelled by environment heat and electricity. One multi-family building with eight dwellings is equipped with an "energy stack" of 220 m**2 absorber surface and a heat pump with a capacity of 48.5 kW. Also one single family house is equipped with an energy fence of 43.2 m**2 absorber surface and a heat pump with a capacity of 10 kW. The report contains: description of the plant and its control procedures, the results of monitoring during two heating periods, the economic viability of the demonstration and future mass produced plants. The annual fuel oil substitution is 7.2 t for the multi- family building and 1.74 t for the single family house at electricity consumptions of 28 200 kWh and 6 900 kWh.
