There are two common features of these modelling studies. Firstly, they all assume some sort of additional thermal storage is available beyond the thermal mass of the building fabric. This may not be a reasonable assumption as anecdotal evidence in the UK suggests that additional storage such as buffer tanks are not regularly installed alongside heat pumps. While buffer tanks are important for demand shifting, Green (2012) found the installation of buffer tanks delivered little or no improvement in heat pump performance in field test- ing of heat pumps under standard operating conditions. Buffer tanks are not mentioned in the UK heat pump- installer guidance (Microgeneration Certification Scheme, 2015) and, indeed, none of the field trial homes considered in this paper has buffer tanks.
