This report looks at technical barriers and opportunities for various archetypes of multi-unit residential buildings (MURBs) and looks at the economic and environmental performance of specific heat pump technologies suitable for MURB retrofits. To generalize what upgrades are suitable for certain buildings, various archetypes were defined with the intent that specific upgrades could be applied on a large number of similar buildings.
