Solar Space Heating (Group Solar Space Heating Systems)
Energy produced from group solar heating systems may be connected to both the space heating and domestic hot water from a group heating scheme. When a group heating scheme includes a solar group heating system contributing to space and water heating, this solar system is accounted for in the DEAP calculation software by entering the solar contribution as a percentage of heat from the group scheme's heating plant. This percentage is entered to the DEAP software in the 'Energy requirements - Group heating -Space heating' tab. To do this, follow the steps in "AppQ_GroupSolar_September09.pdf"to fill out the necessary fields in "AppQ_GroupSolar_September09.xls" and the DEAP software.
Solar Space Heating (Individual Heating Systems)
Energy produced from solar heating systems may be connected to both the space heating and domestic hot water in a dwelling. In this case the solar space heating aspect of these systems is included under the "energy produced/saved" section in DEAP for dwellings with individual heating systems. To do this, follow the steps in AppQ_SolarSpaceHtg_April_09.pdf to fill out the necessary fields in AppQ_SolarSpaceHtg_April_09.xls and the DEAP software.
Last edit Q1 2012
Energy produced from a wind turbine may be included in a DEAP assessment if there is one full year of operational data from the actual site as detailed in DEAP Manual Section M2. The amount of electricity generated over the course of that year may then be entered into the “energy produced / saved” section of DEAP. If monitored data is not available, DEAP Appendix M2 allows the user to estimate the turbine annual electricity output.
