Abstract [en]

This master thesis is an in-depth study of an existing heating system at a household cooperative in Uppsala that has been converted from district heating to a bedrock heat pump system. The study focuses on an economical system optimisation of the building’s complete heating system. The aim was to determine how well a heat pump system in large buildings actually work, find out possible ways to optimize the existing system and point out important system parameters for new heat pump installations in larger buildings.

The project points out a possible energy cost reduction of 45 % without investment and further cost reductions with equipment investments. A reduction by 30 % is possible by improvements in the regulation system and 15 % is possible by maintaining the brine system. Many other energy efficiency improvements are possible by investment in new equipment. 

An important conclusion of the project is that there is a huge need of an energy coordinator for the energy operation of buildings. The different people involved need to cooperate in order to maximize the optimization of the heating systems.
