Heating, domestic hot water

Diese Europäische Norm legt Anforderungen für die Installation und die Abnahme von Warmwasserheizungsanlagen in Gebäuden mit einer maximalen Betriebstemperatur bis 110 °C und einem maximalen Betriebsdruck von 6 bar fest. Diese Europäische Norm gilt nicht für die Installationen und die Abnahme von zugeschalteten Anlagen (z.B. Klimaanlagen, Hauswasseranlagen oder Lüftungsanlagen).

Heat Pumps in near Zero Emission Buildings (nZEB) - in the new issue of the HPT Magazine!   Heat pumps is an excellent choice for low energy buildings! This is evidenced by the three projects (so called annexes) - within the Technology Collaboration Programme on Heat Pumping Technologies (HPT TCP) - that have been devoted to them, as well as the number of countries that have been participating in them. In the latest issue of HPT Magazine, we get an overview of the benefits of using heat pumps in low energy buildings.

by François Durier (CETIAT)   What do we mean by flexibility?   In the context of the energy performance of buildings, the flexibility of a system refers to its ability to adapt to changes, and the ease with which it responds to such changes whilst maintaining or increasing its performance and levels of service.

SEasonal PErformance factor and MOnitoring for heat pump systems in the building sector     The IEE project aimed at overcoming market barriers to a wider application of heat pumps, namely the lack of robust data on the conditions "in real installations" influencing reliability and seasonal efficiency, i.e. the seasonal performance factor (SPF) of heat pump systems across Europe. The objective was to get a broader acceptance of heat pump systems and improved quality assurance for heat pump systems in the building sector.

Training of Photovoltaic Installers     The high photovoltaic market growth rates, further favoured by the EU supporting policies and the favourable national regulatory frameworks, may cause some concern to the PV industry due to the lack of adequately skilled workforce for PV installation and maintenance. Furthermore, the interested parties (manufacturers, developers, investors) seek skills certification and quality assurance in all phases of a PV installation (design, installation and maintenance).

Training courses for installers of small-scale renewable energy systems in buildings     The objective of the IEE Install+RES project was to establish training courses for the qualification of trainers and the certification of installers of renewable energy systems (biomass, solar, PV and heat pumps) in buildings. The target groups were installers (with working experience as plumbers, roofers or electricians) and trainers (as teachers, engineers and professors).

To make new energy efficient buildings or to renovate the existing stock? That is the question. Experts from the construction sector, gathered in Rome and discussed solutions to make the second option worthwhile and cheaper.   Energy consumption in the construction sector is a key issue in the fight against climate change. It is often approached when planning new buildings, but there is little tendency to renovate the existing stock.
