Webinar on electric technologies in dwellings. Key findings of BSRIA study on the potential of heat pumps and photovoltaics in achieving EU emission targets.

When compared to gas condensing boilers, heat pumps achieve much better results in fighting CO2 emissions originating from dwellings in Europe. Their reduction potential even increases when combined with photovoltaics, particularly in countries where electricity generation bears a high CO2 conversion factor. That is the main conclusion of the BSRIA study “Electric technologies – Potential for achieving EU energy targets in residential dwellings (2013)”, commissioned by the Leonardo ENERGY initiative.

The study assesses CO2 emissions and lifecycle costs of various heat and/or electricity generating technologies, for both new and existing dwellings. By comparing several European countries (Germany, Sweden, Poland, Italy, Spain, France and United Kingdom), the study reveals that effective policies and support schemes by local governments help achieving energy efficiency and CO2 emission reduction targets at low end user cost.

  • Following renewable technologies have been taken into consideration: electric heat pumps, micro CHP, PV (called “established technologies” across the presentation as well as fuel cells and intelligent controls (called emerging technologies across the presentation). They have been set against the high efficiency gas condensing boiler which was taken as base technology to be enhanced or replaced by renewable product.Among the assumptions the most important point is to understand that our calculations have taken into account total energy consumption of the household, not only related to the applied system. Product efficiency has been based on available info from manufacturers as well as from efficiency test programs carried out by various institutes in some European countries and BSRIA information. Different heat load has been assumed for existing and new dwellings in each countries. The average size of products/ systems applied in residential dwellings came from the research BSRIA WMI has carried out during the last 10 years on the European renewable markets.
  • For your information a brief overview of main factors that represent the background of the analysis. Our study has been looking at longer term perspective, with 2030 development in view. Not all of the analysed countries have a defined 2030 energy targets. However having the European Energy Roadmap 2050 in mind and targets adopted in some of the leading European countries we have assumed that the trend in the next 20 years will be to increase the share of RES in electricity production (63% of RES in electricity production in Germany, 15% RES in UK energy demand by 2020). The choice of technologies presented today is also in relation to this trend.
  • We have provided this analysis based on the level of incentives, energy prices, product efficiency and heat load that do not change over the next 20 years. It would certainly be interesting to know which of the above factors will have the biggest impact on future effectiveness of the systems and which will most significantly influence their sales potential. Should you be interested to become actively involved in the project please let us know promptly.

Heat load for new and existing dwellings and electricity consumption vary by country. • Current level of financial support and Feed-in-tariffs is applied. • Gas condensing boiler: primary efficiency 92% • Micro CHP system: primary efficiency 90%. Average electricity production: 3000kWh per year. 50% of generated electricity is used on site. • Electric Heat Pump: A/W HP COP 2.9 - 3.5 in existing dwelling / COP 3.9 - 4.5 in new dwelling • PV system: around 3kWp in all countries but Germany where larger system is more common (7kWp). 35% of electricity produced is for own consumption. • SO FC: overall efficiency 95% (thermal efficiency 60%, electric efficiency 35%) • PEM FC: overall efficiency 90% (thermal efficiency 53%, electric efficiency 37%) • Energy and end user prices based on the first half of 2013. Analysis has taken following products into consideration: • Gas condensing boiler (as a base technology to be enhanced or replaced by renewable products), Heat Pumps, mico CHP, PV (called established technologies),Fuel cells, intelligent controls (called emerging technologies) Has been carried out in: Germany, France, Italy, Poland, Spain, Sweden and UK
