PUMP-HEAT concept overview

Heat Pump (HP) as a smart electrical load

HP allows Combined Cycle (CC) to sell grid services also when the CC is off

HP impacts on the Gas Turbine (GT) inlet air, reducing Pmin and augmenting Pmax as required

HP produces useful heat for district heating network (DHN), displacing auxiliary boilers

HP also increases the CC average annual efficiency
