 Analysis from the first phase of the Energy Saving Trust’s heat pump trial: April 2009 to April 2010
The Energy Saving Trust monitored 83 heat pumps in residential properties acrossGreat Britain from April 2009 to April 2010. Findings from Phase I of this project werepublished in a report entitled
Getting warmer: a field trial of heat pumps
on theEnergy Saving Trust’s website in September 2010.
 Analysis from the first phase of the Energy Saving Trust’s heat pump trial: April 2009to April 2010 
examines a number of these heat pump installations in more detail,paying particular attention to the factors that influence system performance. As aresult of some of the analysis presented here, the Microgeneration CertificationScheme (MCS) standards for heat pump installation
have been updated. Aimed primarily at heat pump manufacturers, installers and training and certificationbodies, this report is specialist in nature. It will also be of interest to academics,building services engineers and low-carbon heating consultants.Sections 5 and 6 present additional analysis of data collected from Phase I of theongoing Energy Saving Trust field trial. The sample is slightly different to thatreported in
Getting warmer 
as six sites with solar thermal panels have beenincluded, and three sites with faulty heat meters were removed.Sections 7 and 8 are concerned with detailed site-by-site analysis to determine thereasons for good or poor performance. The insights from this analysis have formedthe basis for the development of the new MCS heat pump installation standards.Several interventions have been carried out since these data were recorded. Theimpacts of these interventions have been monitored during a continuing secondyear. A report will be published in late 2012 which will discuss their effects onperformance.Section 11 of this report describes other studies in this area and future work.
