Residential renewable heating and cooling (RHC) is very important, accounting for 43% of the final bioenergy consumption in Europe (EU-27) in 2008, and is estimated to reach 45% by 2020. However, this is also a sector which is facing a number of challenges in the future, related to an accelerating introduction of low energy and passive housing. In low energy and passive houses, user thermal comfort is becoming increasingly important. Due to the low heat...
