This chapter touches the system configurations of solar assisted ground source heat pumps, giving an overview of the main system components at first. Series and parallel/dual sources configurations have been discussed for a technical point of view, identifying main operating modes in accordance with the use of the produced solar heat. Indicators for assessing energy performance of main system components singularly and overall system have been also presented, paying attention also on the final energy supply chain from the used energy fuels.
