AB - In thiswork weanalyse the year-round technoeconomicperformance of a solar combined cooling, heating and power (S-CCHP)system that features polymeric flat-box PVT collectorscoupled via a thermal store to an absorptionchiller. The hourly space heating (SH), cooling and electricitydemands of the University Campus of Bari are used as inputs to amodeldeveloped in TRNSYS.Current electricity and gas prices are considered in order to estimate the annual cost savings which, together with the system’s investment cost, allow an estimation of itspayback time (PBT). The results are then compared to a PV systemthat matchesthe electricity demand of the Campus (including the electricity required to run the current HVAC system for air-conditioning).The results show that the main limiting factorfor the implementationof the S-CCHP systemis the roof-space availability in this application. Asystem with aninstalled power of 1.68MWpcan cover14% of the SH, 66% of the cooling and 17% oftheelectricaldemands of the Campus. The system’s PBTis estimated at 19.3years, which is 3 times higher than the PBTof a PV system of the same installed power, nevertheless,the proposed S-CCHPsystemhas the potential to displace 1,170tons CO2/year, or 50% more than theequivalentPV solution.
