The decarbonisation potential of residential heat pump technology strongly depends on the public electricity and heat production system. The study presents the national scenarios of replacing the individual heat sources with electrically driven heat pumps in residential space heating. The heat pumps impact on residential CO2 emission and energy balance in public electricity and heat production system were assessed at national level. Application of particular scenario give an incommensurable effect. The space heating sector based on heat pumps may decrease the CO2 emission up to 42.2% or not change the results despite the technology development.
