BuildHeat is quickly leaving its research phase by moving towards the validation and the demonstration phase of the solution packages developed for the three project demo sites.   This step was marked in Madrid at the end of February 2018. The innovation partners of the project gathered for a two days’ progress meeting at Acciona premises where they had series of plenary discussions and reporting sessions regarding its project achievements.

The project tackles energy efficiency at district level by developing an innovative district heating & cooling (DHC) network controller. The project partners have developed a controller based on self-learning algorithms, which is currently experimented in the two STORM demo sites. The developed controller maximises the use of waste heat and renewable energy sources in DHC networks.

There is enough waste energy produced in the EU to heat the EU’s entire building stock.    Waste heat recovery from energy-intensive industry and cogeneration is slowly picking up in the EU. But did you know that even the excess heat produced in a metro system could heat houses? And did you know that supermarkets, data centres and sewage systems also produce excess heat that can be used?

Efficiency measures at the building envelope and the building services systems decrease the operational costs of buildings. But reduced costs can lead to changes in the behaviour of the building users. They consume more energy and parts of the originally planned energy savings are used-up. The so-called “rebound effect” describes the difference between the theoretically expected savings and the savings achieved in reality. The rebound effect can be indicated as percentage of the deviation from the expected savings.
