Data centres are among the biggest electrical energy consumers. In the Renew IT project scientists from five countries examined how data centres could be supplied almost entirely with renewable energy. This BINE project info presents a case study of an office building in Stuttgart in which a heat pump cools the in-house data centre and at the same time provides heat to the building.     To download the document, please visit the relevant BINE webpage at the link provided below.

The Solar Keymark was created to certify solar thermal collectors and solar thermal systems, storages and controllers at European level. The aim is to reduce trade barriers and promote the use of high quality solar thermal products in the European market and beyond. The Solar Keymark is a CEN/CENELEC voluntary third-party certification mark for solar thermal products, demonstrating to end-users that a product conforms to the relevant European standards and fulfils additional requirements.

The Horizon 2020 funded CoolHeating project aims to support the implementation of “small modular renewable heating and cooling grids” for communities in South-Eastern Europe. This is achieved through knowledge transfer and mutual activities of partners in countries where renewable district heating and cooling examples exist (Austria, Denmark, Germany) and in countries which have less development (Croatia, Slovenia, Macedonia, Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina).
