In this research, monitored data of residential PV – heat pump systems have been analyzed and modelled to assess their energy performance, CO2 emission reduction potential, the level of thermal comfort and their selfsufficiency. On the basis of a 5-minutes data set of a Dutch smart grid pilot named PowerMatching City which is based in Groningen, 11 households equipped with these systems have been evaluated. On the basis of five scenarios modelled it was found that systems with hybrid heat pumps with large PV systems (15 kWp) and mid-sized PV systems (4,25 kWp) would result in nearly zero-energy buildings. However, the self-sufficiency of electrical heating results were 10% to 110% less compared to hybrid heating. The major moderating factor is that the entire electrification of heating scale electricity demand 400% up. Entirely electrical heating will reduce the amount of CO2 emissions only if the seasonal coefficient of performance of the heat pumps would exceed 3.35, for our Dutch case study, mainly due to high emissions of the grid and low share of renewable.
