The purpose of this guide is to give specifiers and advisors clear and concise information about ground source heat pumps (GSHPs) in dwellings. It covers the different types of system, and the benefits. T he sun radiates considerable energy onto the earth. Desire to put that relatively low-intensity (rarely over Btu/h · ft 2) energy to work has led to the creation of many types of devices to convert that energy into useful forms, mainly heat and okto-atelier.comic valuing of that energy drives the ebb and flow of the global solar industry.

Passive house (German: Passivhaus) is a voluntary standard for energy efficiency in a building, which reduces the building's ecological footprint. It results in ultra-low energy buildings that require little energy for space heating or cooling.

A similar standard, MINERGIE-P, is used in Switzerland. The standard is not confined to residential properties; several office buildings, schools. Bilal Messahel - Investigating the potential of waste materials to construct low energy, thermally comfortable dwellings for low income communities.

Sourbron, Nesrin Ozalp. History. District heating traces its roots to the hot water-heated baths and greenhouses of the ancient Roman okto-atelier.comy, a hot water distribution system in Chaudes-Aigues in France is regarded as the first real district heating system.

It used geothermal energy to provide heat for about 30 houses and started operation in the 14th century. In temperate countries, heat recovery is often desirable through mechanical ventilation with heat recovery (MVHR).

Drawbacks of MVHR include use of electric power and complex ducting, while alternative passive heat recovery systems in the form of roof or chimney-based solutions are limited to low rise buildings. This paper describes a biomimetic concept for natural ventilation with heat Cited by: 1.

Downloadable (with restrictions). The performance of a photovoltaic solar assisted heat pump (PV-SAHP) with variable-frequency compressor is reported in this paper.

The system is a direct integration of photovoltaic/thermal solar collectors and heat pump. The solar collectors extract the required thermal energy from the heat pump and at the same time, the cooling effect of the refrigerant.

FOREWORD M A R T Y N R E E D, M A N A G I N G D I R E C T O R. Welcome to another edition of Elmhurst members’ magazine, Energy Matters.

I am pleased to. The compressor squeezes the molecules of the refrigerant gas together, increasing the temperature of the refrigerant. The condenser is a coil in which the refrigerant gives off heat to its surroundings and becomes a liquid. The expansion device lowers the pressure created by the compressor.

This causes the temperature to drop, and. Contributors to this Conference have shown the wide range of active and passive solar heating systems which have been researched, installed and monitored in recent years throughout western Europe and elsewhere.
