Abstract The International Energy Agency (IEA) reports that 46% of global energy demand is devoted to heating and cooling. Two thirds of this demand is met by fossil fuels, either via electricity generation or direct combustion. Both the heating and cooling energy demands are expected to grow rapidly in the coming decades. In order to achieve the global goal of CO2 emission reduction, energy efficiency must be strongly improved. Thermally driven heat pumps, due to their efficient energy use and their adoption of environmentally benign refrigerants with no Global Warming Potential (GWP), are able to contribute to reduce the environmental impact of heating and cooling. Worldwide interest in thermally driven heat pumps and cooling machines is continually increasing. This book, a result of Annex 34 “Thermally Driven Heat Pumps for Heating and Coolingâ€? of the International Energy Agency's Heat Pump Programme (HPP), aims to improve the understanding of this environmentally friendly technology by providing information on both the fundamentals and the recent developments. With cooperation from experts from about twenty institutions and more than ten countries, it has been made possible to address a large number of topics in this wide field. Therefore a thank you is in order to all contributing participants for their work and willingness to share results. The target audience for this book includes planners, scientists, students and anyone who would like an overview of the technology. Individual papers contributed by the research institutes and companies are arranged in the following chapters: “Thermally driven heat pumps for heatingâ€?, “Thermally driven heat pumps for coolingâ€?, and, as useful heat and cold can also be supplied simultaneously or seasonally consecutively, “Thermally driven heat pumps for heating and coolingâ€?. A final chapter discusses “Research on working pairs and apparatus technologyâ€?. The intentions of this book are to encourage the reader to pursue the approaches, to overcome remaining hurdles and lastly to apply the technology in practice.
