The combination of solar thermal, photovoltaic, and heat pump technologies is a welcome advancement in countries with large solar resources such as Turkey. These systems could have similar efficiencies throughout the year for different locations in Turkey if we adjust the solar storage according to the weather conditions. In this paper, solar heating with a heat pump system for buildings have been designed to achieve different values of the fraction of primary energy saved using Fiat Plate Collectors (FPC) and solar photovoltaic (PV) technology, and having a high system efficiency resulting in net zero energy for thermal production.
