A review of factors affecting environmental and economic life-cycle performance for electrically-driven heat-pumps

This report presents a review of life-cycle cost studies involving heat pump systems. It presents an overview of the main factors characterizing life-cycle cost methodologies for heat pump systems and identifies which factors that have the greatest impact on the results. It also suggests methodological improvements to be employed in order to make life-cycle cost analyses more robust.
