Abstract

Reducing energy use for heating hot water remains a major challenge around the world. This paper describes a novel solar photovoltaic-assisted heat pump water heater (PV-HPWH which achieved an 83% reduction (COP 5.4) in water heating energy compared with electric resistance. This technology demonstrates very large potential residential energy savings around the United States.
