Comfort Climate Box CCB 
General background Comfort Climate Box (CCB) Integrated systems consisting of heat pumps and storage are an important technological option to accelerate the use of renewable energy for heating and cooling. Commercial development of this type of solution is progressing very slowly. This Combined Annex will accelerate market development of combined heat pump / storage packages (working title “Comfort and Climate Box”, or CCB). This will be the first Annex to integrate the work from the HPT and ECES Technology Collaboration Programs (TCP), building upon the earlier work in the fields of Heat Pumps and Storage systems. Definition of concepts Comfort & Climate Box (CCB) The central concept in this Annex is the Comfort and Climate Box. This concept denotes a combined package, consisting of a Heat Pump, an Energy Storage Module and Controls. This package may form an actual physical unit but can also consist of separate modules that form an integrated ‘virtual pack-age’. Relation to other Annexes Several international projects have already partially focused on the goals of this Combined Annex. Information exchange to obtain exchange information with these projects is important to guarantee adequate progress. Relation to HPT long-term strategy In line with the strategic goals of ECES and HPT, this Annex will contribute to accelerating the market development of heat pumps and energy storage regarding the perspective of energy security, demonstration of combination of the technologies; working towards affordable solutions. Decreasing the “lab-to-market” time for combined heat pump / storage packages; demonstrating cost-effectiveness of these packages.
