Coupling PV systems with heating and hot water systems

The PV*SOL premium version 2021 has been adapted to the latest technical developments and expanded for future-oriented applications. By integrating the simulation of a complete hot water system with the integration of a thermal building model from the sister program T*SOL, the share of the energy consumption of an electric heat pump to cover the thermal building energy requirement, or the hot water energy requirement, can now be calculated and the respective share of the electricity from the PV system determined. The global climate data from Meteonorm 7.3 has also been added so the program includes the latest climate data records currently available.
