Energy Modeling & Analysis of Dual Fuel Heating System, Single FamilyProject Number ET23SWG0005 Organization SWG (Statewide Gas ETP) End-use HVAC Sector Residential Project Year(s) 2023 - N/A
This project is proposed to perform energy modeling and analysis of dual fuel heating systems in the single-family homes of California. The study will model different dual fuel heating scenarios using DEER EnergyPlus single family prototype models built around several parameters such as switchover temperature between natural gas and electric, emission factors, outside air temperatures and utility rates. A combination of EnergyPlus simulations, spreadsheet analysis and SME interviews will be used. This proposed study will guide utilities, end users and manufacturers to determine how the dual fuel heating system can maximize both energy savings and carbon emissions reductions in the near term.
