Project Info ACTIVE Project Title Cascade thermoelectric heat pump with vapor compression heat pump Project Number ET22SCE0004 Investor Owned Utilities SCE End-use HVAC Sector Residential Project Year(s) 2022 - 2025
The proposed technology is a residential/ small commercial heat pump (~3-5 tons capacity) that cascades a thermoelectric (TE) heat pump with a conventional air-source heat pump. This heat pump will (a) Boost capacity and COP at colder outside air temperatures, (b) Reduce peak demand by eliminating electric resistance (strip heat) or backup heating and (c) improve efficiency by ~10%.
