DekarbWP: Decarbonization of heating and cooling supply by means of absorption heat pump systems

In order to provide heating and cooling in the most sustainable and CO2-neutral way possible, the trend is emerging to combine different technologies such as renewable heat generators, absorption heat pumping plants (comprising heat pumps and chillers) and thermal storages. Inevitably, this often results in complex systems whose dimensioning and control are a major challenge.

In the project DekarbWP methods are developed, which allow the optimal dimensioning and the optimal control of such systems with absorption heat pumping plants. As a result, these systems can be operated with high efficiency, low costs and minimal CO2 emissions, which should significantly advance the decarbonization of heating and cooling supply in Styria.
