The identification and development of modelling tools to calculate the design temperature up from the ground has been achieved. It has been shown using Polishuset data and experimental studies that existing tools can be used, even for cases with as low levels of peak cooling power as Polishuset. The COP has also been possible to measure and quantify. Also suggestions on how to proceed in a new Bygginnovationen project, to validate the calculation and design for a more typical office building with normal cooling power level, have been specified.
