Abstract

To prevent future energy crisis and tackle the problems of climate change, modern society must promote a radical evolution in our energy systems. The building sector, and in particular its heating needs, have clearly been identified as one of the main targets for the reduction of the global energy usage. In addition, buildings are a key actor for the development of renewable energy sources.
The main objective of this research study is to investigate and demonstrate the possibility of integrating an innovative magnetocaloric heat pump in a single-family house under Danish weather conditions. Moreover, the study includes a numerical analysis to increase the understanding of the heating energy flexibility potential of residential buildings using thermal storage in the indoor environment.
