Energy use forecasting for heat pumps 2008

In 2008 BRANZ Ltd undertook a heat pump study report titled Active Cooling and Heat Pump Use in New Zealand. In order to fully understand the effect that this increase in heat pumps is having on the power system, and what effect it may have into the future, Transpower commissioned BRANZ to extend its research and evaluate the impact of heat pumps on the demand for electricity, and thus load on the power system.
