In 2017, the LowUP project hit several milestones. This year, more progress will be made in order to raise awareness amongst stakeholders and obtain further engagement for the solutions to be developed during the course of the project. Two dissemination workshops are in purview with information about the benefits of the LowUP solutions specifically targeted to different groups of potential stakeholders.
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

The three systems will be demonstrated at four demo sites: a pilot office building in Seville (Spain, ACCIONA Construction); a water treatment plant in Madrid (Canal de Isabel II & ACCIONA Water); a Pulp and Paper mill in Setubal (Portugal, The Navigator Company); and a student hall in Badajoz (Spain, University of Extremadura). At this time, we have concluded the retrofitting works
During the first year of the project, four demo sites have been evaluated in order to be equipped with their respective LowUP systems during the next year. In parallel, individual components have been designed and customized for each one of the sites.
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. Led by the Spanish firm ACCIONA, LowUP gathers 13 partners
The Association for Decentralised Energy and the Energy Institute will be holding their sixth annual Heat Conference on Thursday 30 November 2017, this year widening the event to incorporate a broader decentralised energy remit. Now is the time for the heat and decentralised energy sectors to show leadership. The world is changing. With a minority Government in office and our
