Description

Location: GLO - Global
The module reflects a diffusion absorption heat pump with peak load gas-boiler and a short borehole heat exchanger. Inventory based on information from literature for future production based on manufacturer data. Life time for the total system assumed with 20 years or 42'000 h full load operation.
[The full documentation of this dataset was originally provided in the corresponding ecoinvent report from the Swiss Centre for Life Cycle Inventories, which is accessible for free to guests and users of ecoinvent version 2 (https://www.ecoinvent.org/login-databases.html). The dataset may subsequently have been subjected to central changes to the database, as described in the respective change report for each new release.]
Undefined unit processes (UPRs) are the unlinked, multi-product activity datasets that form the basis for all of the system models available in the ecoinvent database. This is the way the datasets are obtained and entered into the database by the data providers. These activity datasets are useful for investigating the environmental impacts of a specific activity (gate-to-gate), without regard to its upstream or downstream impacts.

Technology

Diffusion absorption heat pump with 4 kWth nominal thermal power connected to a short borehole heat exchanger. The unit includes a peak load boiler which allows a maximal output power of 11 kWth. Operation with connection to low pressure gas network. Seasonal performance factor (SPF) of 1.32. Supply temperature of the heating system 50°C.
