Horizon 2020 energy efficiency projects CATALYST, LowUP and COOL DH developed innovative technologies for waste heat extraction and utilisation. They were presented and discussed during the 5th International Conference on Smart Energy Systems at the Aalborg University in Copenhagen. The vision of CATALYST project is to turn Data Centers into multi-carrier energy hubs. Data Centers have a big potential as players in
Summary On 9 September 2019, EASME B.1.1 organised a workshop on Waste Heat & Cold utilisation. The workshop was organised as a side event of 5th International Conference on Smart Energy Systems and was hosted at the premises of Aalborg University. The aim of the conference was to establish a venue for presenting and discussing scientific findings and industrial experiences
Experimental study of Phase Change Material influence on different models of Photovoltaic-Thermal collectors Highlights Experimental evaluation photovoltaic-thermal performance on different models. Analysis of phase change material effect on the energy performance. Different PVT configurations are considered and compared with a commercial model. PCM provoked the reallocation of the heat generation, reaching to 30% of max. level. Thermal and electrical performance
LowUP – which stands for ‘Low valued energy sources UPgrading for buildings and industry uses’– will contribute to achieving Europe’s GHG reduction targets and increase energy efficiency. The project will develop and demonstrate three new efficient heating and cooling technologies that will significantly reduce both CO2 emissions and primary energy consumption. Heating and cooling refers to the energy needed to
LowUP: Tell us a bit about your company. What does it do and in which way is it involved in energy efficiency? Raquel: EndeF is a solar technology company located in Zaragoza, Spain. Our goal is to develop and implement solutions based on energy efficiency and the generation of energy with renewable sources. In this regard, the company is focused
The one-day Dissemination Workshop was conducted in Milan, Italy. The first part of the workshop focused on the LowUP project and each of its solutions while the second part was a guided tour of the POZZI facilities in Barlassina, Italy where a component of Heat-LowUP is being developed. In addition to the project partners, several external participants were in attendance.
The third meeting of the Horizon 2020 LowUP project was held on 3 May 2018, on the premises of ACIMIT – the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers in Milan, Italy with the participation of over 25 representatives from the 13 European organisations involved in the project. The LowUP consortium meets twice a year to keep up with the project’s progress. Now at month eighteen,
On 29 and 30 November 2017, GEA, one of the thirteen LowUP project partners graciously hosted the Second General Technical Meeting in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands. It’s been 12 months since the start of the LowUP project! During this meeting, the partners discussed the technical aspects of LowUP while assessing the progress made so far. Pertinent questions relating to the exploitation of
In this section, we discuss energy efficient solutions and the possibility of nZEB with the LowUP project partners. Our debut interview features Jouni Helppolainen who shares some barriers to energy efficient solutions in buildings and how to overcome them. LowUP: Tell us a bit about your company. What does it do and in which way is it involved in energy efficiency?
A new project funded by the European Commission has just been launched and will contribute to achieving Europe’s GHG reduction targets and increase energy efficiency. LowUp – which stands for ‘Low valued energy sources UPgrading for buildings and industry uses’– will develop and demonstrate three new efficient heating and cooling technologies that will significantly reduce both CO2 emissions and primary
