Title: Annual Energy Savings and Peak Power Reduction Simulated for CCHP Design and Baseline HP in Cold Climate Cities

Abstract

This report assesses energy savings and peak power reduction of three heat pumps in multiple US cold climate cities and building types. The three heat pumps comprise a baseline heat pump and two high efficiency cold climate heat pumps (CCHP). The DOE/ORNL Heat Pump Design Model was used to simulate the heat pumps and generate performance curves for EnergyPlus building energy simulations. The annual energy simulations were performed over seven cold climates: 1) Minneapolis, MN; 2) Duluth, MN; 3) Fairbanks, AK; 4) Helena, MT; 5) Indianapolis, IN; 6) Peoria, IL and 7) Eagle County, CO. In order to assess impact of residential building types matching different energy codes, we simulated six single-family houses in Indianapolis, IN, including : 1) single-family house having a crawlspace; 2) having a slab foundation; 3) having a heated basement; 4) having an unheated basement; 5) one single-family house having a heated basement matching IECC code of 2009, 6) and one single-family house having a heated basement matching IECC code of 2012. The former 4 houses match the IECC 2006 code.
