An integrated fuel cell/heat pump system

Objective

The objective of the proposed project is to investigate a novel integrated fuel cell/heat pump system for electricity, heating and cooling applications.

The specific objectives are:
1. Computer performance and socio-economics modelling of the fuel cell/heat pump combination;
2. Verification of modelling results by laboratory testing of the performance and operating characteristics of the system components (fuel cell, heat pump etc.) and new working fluids;
3. Design, construction and pre-testing of a prototype system in the laboratory and study of building integration;
4. Field testing and demonstration of the prototype system in a test facility.
