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 120 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 has been growing and features a robust collection of national and international projects on renewable heating and cooling. The possibility to submit projects via an online form is possible since September 2020.
Consumers Leading the EU’s Energy Ambition Response, Expansion
CLEAR-X project’s overall objective is to help consumers reduce their energy bills by improving the energy performance and comfort of their homes through the investment in renewable energy and sustainable energy (RES), as well as energy-efficient technologies. The project will engage 38 000 consumers in collective purchase campaigns in six target countries.
Smart and flexible heat and power from biomass derived liquids for small-scale CHP application
Micro combined heat and power systems are an energy-efficient technology that simultaneously provides heat and electricity to households and businesses.
The new generation of scalable urban HEat isLand mitigatIOn by means of adaptive photoluminescent radiative cooling Skins
Passive cooling methods use design choices to maximise the comfort and health of building users while minimising energy use. These methods have been shown to slowly mitigate urban heat islands.
integRatEd Solutions for Positive eNergy and reSilient CitiEs
RESPONSE project will support two Lighthouse Cities and six Fellow Cities across Europe in delivering positive energy blocks and districts.
Flexible Energy Production, Demand and Storage-based Virtual Power Plants for Electricity Markets and Resilient DSO Operation
FEVER implements and demonstrates solutions and services that leverage flexibility towards offering electricity grid services that address problems of the distribution grid, thus enabling it to function in a secure and resilient manner.
Technologies for geothermal to enhance competitiveness in smart and flexible operation
GeoSmart will combine thermal energy storages with flexible ORC solutions to provide a highly flexible operational capability of a geothermal installation.
Modular HEATing Technology through renewable resources for steel production
Nowadays the overall energy demand in downstream steel production is mainly based on fossil fuel, so it is fundamental to find and set new ways to overcome the environmental impact of steel production.
Pushing the limits of large-scale energy storage: optimized combined cycle caes
The construction of an experimental cavern lab in the Canary Islands will lead to the first isobaric adiabatic CAES system at TRL4 in Europe, while meeting the expected outcomes of the Challenge, filling in the existing gaps to accelerate the penetration of renewable energies in the grid.
Next Renewable multi-GENeration technology enables by TWO-phase fluids machines
The prototype, using two-phase flow compressors and expanders, will be able to convert any type of renewable thermal source (e.g. solar, aerothermal, geothermal and hydrothermal) from low to high temperature, including additional thermal sources such as waste heat.
