Ground-Source Heat Pump Performance Analysis Based on Building-Integrated Renewable Energy Demonstration Projects
Renewable energy, which is drawing more and more attentions in low global warming potential research area, has been applied in a large area of China for the past decade. In 2004, the overall application area of ground-source heat pump (GSHP) as a typical renewable energy is less than 8 million m2, while the overall application area increased dramatically to 100 million m2 till 2009. The present work did an in-depth research of coefficient of system performance (COPs) of GSHP based on the test results of around 70 building-integrated applications over 5 million m2. After comparison of different cool/heat source types and analysis of the collected existing application problems, the present paper provides some suggestions on the sustainable application of GSHP in China.
