Chess Setup members had the opportunity to come back to University for the 3rd project meeting. Hosted by the Centre for Sustainable Technologies of the Ulster University and its professor Neil Hewitt, they reviewed the work carried on over the past year.
The project took shape, as the members defined technical issues of the combination system, such as:
- The construction techniques,
- The legislation report,
- The ability to integrate other energy sources and technologies,
- The monitoring system,
- The heat pump design, with a site visit of the Ulster’s facilities.
Practical issues were also raised, and the pilots started to overcome the system installation’s potential obstacles such as:
- The robustness of the roofs,
- The volume of the tanks,
- The construction’s delays.
As the pilots’ implementation runs its course, it is time to start defining potential business models of the system, and to further dissemination activities. The partners debated about the opportunity of a workshop, and a mid-term conference focusing on some themes related to project.
We will keep you up to date about these forthcoming events!
