Demonstration of Energy Efficient and Environmental Friendly Heat Pumping System Using Co(2) as Working Fluid

Demonstration of Energy Efficient and Environmental Friendly Heat Pumping System Using Co(2) as Working Fluid

Objective

The main objectives of the V project are to demonstrate functionality of CO2 heat pumps systems for hot water supply, space heating and drying process and to introduce such systems into the market. µ This project also aims to save energy and to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions caused by heat pumps running with conventional refrigeratnts and conventional heating systems and to resolve current European and world wide concerns regarding carbon-dioxide as a working fluid in heat pumps The project will address the following key European societal needs: Demonstrating the energetic efficiency and the cost effictiveness of heat pumps using the advantages of carbon-dioxide as a refrigeraatnt, ensuring and increasing the competitiveness of the European heat pump industry and contributing to minimising the direct (refrigerant losses) and indirect (CO2 emissions caused by burning fossil fuels for providing energy) effects pf heats pumps to the global warming problem.
