Wood Stoves for Cutting Electricity Costs and Preventing Unnecessary Expansions of the Electricity Grid
My goal in this project is to investigate wood-burning stoves with the aim of reducing electricity expenses and averting unnecessary expansion of the electricity grid.
Some industries require temperatures of between 100 and 180 degrees. A high temperature heat pump is able to deliver this, so it has great commercial potential.
Hopefully my PhD project will contribute to a sustainable woodstove future, where the impact on climate is mitigated and the air quality will be improved, which will improve people’s health and quality of life.
In our new guidebook on low-temperature district heating implementation, we propose a toolbox.
We’ve studied 140 hotels in Norway and Sweden, and found that CO2 heat pumps in hotels can reduce thermal energy consumption by about 60%.
