Abstract: The scope of the research was to investigate whether renewable energy source application could contribute to higher performance, against a typical efficient HVAC system considering mandatory energy requirements as usually applied in commercial buildings. Two HVAC solutions, an air-source heat pump and a ground source heat pump system was modelled, simulated and evaluated using triple-criteria evaluation method. The HVAC systems were evaluated from the aspect of energy use, environmental and economic performance. Results demonstrated that the ground source heat pump due to its higher initial investment will demonstrate approximately 28% higher performance in all categories compared to an air source system.
