Combined HEat SyStem by using Solar Energy and heaT pUmPs


The Project


The project objective is to design, implement and promote a reliable, efficient and profitable system able to supply heating and hot water in buildings mainly from renewable sources. The proposed system is based on an optimal combination of solar thermal energy production, seasonal heat storage and the use of highly efficient heat pumps. The system operation will be optimized according to some external factors, as the electricity price or the users' requirements by using a smart control and management systems developed specifically for the project.
