Projects on renewable heating and cooling
The projects section aims at tracking the ongoing projects in the area of renewable heating and cooling with focus on those which are funded at EU level. Available since 2019, this database currently includes more than 100 projects and it was officially presented during RHC ETIP’s annual conference 2019, in Helsinki.
Each project displays a logo, the project acronym, a short summary and information about patners and the corresponding funding programme. You can look for a specific project by using the filters listed on the side of this page!
The RHC-ETIP projects’ database is growing and by 2021 we will feature a robust collection of national and international projects on renewable heating and cooling. In line with this objective the possibility to submit projects via an online form is possible since September 2020.
Sustainable and Integrated Energy Systems in Local Communities
The aim of the SERENE project is to develop and demonstrate sustainable, integrated, cost-effective and customer-centric solutions for local communities. The idea is to integrate different energy system carriers and new renewable generation units in the local communities based on their social and technical status today to meet their energy needs in the coming years.
Circular Biomass Build Up
LIFE CB2Us main objective is to demonstrate a circular economy concept for processing biomass waste from urban landscaping to produce biochar, generating in addition energy, achieving as a result district heating with negative net emissions in Stockholm.
As part of the thermal renovation of a building with 24 social dwellings, installation of a bioclimatic greenhouse on the existing roof. The idea is to test the thermal exchange between the building and the greenhouse. The greenhouse will capture heat to be used to heat domestic hot water, while the building will heat the greenhouse in the winter.
High-pErformance moduLar battery packs for sustaInable urban electrOmobility Services
The HELIOS project aims at developing and integrating innovative materials, designs, technologies and processes to create a new concept of smart, modular and scalable battery pack for a wide range of electric vehicles used in urban electromobility services, from mid-size electric vehicles to electric buses, with improved performance, energy density, safety, lifetime and LCoS (Levelized Cost of Storage).
Renewable Energy System for residential building heating and electricity production
The EU-funded RESHeat project will develop a system for the use of solar energy as the primary renewable energy source. Novelties of the system include integrated sun-tracked and cooled PV panels and solar collectors as well as advanced underground energy storage units. The latter aim to enable a high coefficient of performance COP of the heat pump over a longer period of time, thereby efficient underground energy storage, reducing the overall electrical energy consumption by the heat pump compressor, and heat storage from various sources.
Efficiency and Safety in Geothermal Operations
To achieve the main objective, we will work on the whole chain of geothermal operations, from production to power-plant engineering to injection. We will develop novel monitoring concepts, perform real-time simulations, develop system components, assess novel concepts for operations and test operational parameters at the field scale.
Optimisation of Geothermal Drilling Operation with Machine Learning
The automated machine learning analysis method will predict drilling parameters, using a real-time monitoring and optimization tool, as a unified system combining existing data and the newly developed methods, and finally, a coupled drilling optimization models to reduce overall geothermal drilling and production cost; process, and share and transfer this learning across subsequent future application.
HIGee to Furanic-based jet Fuel technologY
HIGFLY will develop the next generation of technologies for the production of advanced bio jet fuels from abundant and sustainable biomass feedstocks. HIGFLY will develop and demonstrate in a step-wise approach and under industrially relevant conditions, innovative and highly efficient conversion technologies and integrative approaches to valorise abundant and sustainable feedstocks in a resource-, energy- and cost-effective manner.
HeAt PumPs in existing multi-family buildings for achieving union’s ENergy and envIromeNtal Goals
The proposed technological solution is based on decentralized heat pumps, in such a way that it results an easy-to-install solution for installers, low-intrusive for the occupants and easily adaptable to a large number of different building situations. This is flanked by developing near-zero planning, implementation and operation processes, in order to facilitate the work during the planning phase, ensure a high-quality installation and effective operation, and reduce the efforts and costs within the whole retrofitting project.
ENvelope meSh aNd digitAl framework for building Renovation
The project will target the development of modular adaptable components to be integrated within the system (rather than marketed as standalone products that increase the cost and complexity of the system), including an active window for ventilation and heat recovery, solar harvesting devices (thermal collectors, PV and hybrid panels with advanced technologies such as roll-bonding), heat pumps and energy batteries for load shifting.
