The Horizon 2020 funded TESSe2b project (Thermal Energy Storage Systems for Energy Efficient Buildings) will enable the optimal use of renewable energy and provide one of the most advantageous solutions for correcting the mismatch that often occurs between the supply and demand of energy in residential buildings. The target of TESSe2b is to design, develop, validate and demonstrate a modular and low cost thermal storage technology based on solar collectors and highly efficient heat pumps for heating, cooling and domestic hot water (DHW) production.

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 school was built in 2012/13 as a public private partnership. The main energy related targets were to achieve passive house standard, to use prefabricated timber facades and renewable energy sources. The building should reach high indoor environment quality and fulfil the measures set in the Norwegian “Cities of the Future” - a collaboration between the government and the 13 largest cities in Norway to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and make the cities better places to live.   General information

The EU funded CHESS-SETUP  project (Combined HEat SyStem by using Solar Energy and heaT pUmPs) aims to design, implement and promote a reliable, efficient and profitable system able to supply heating and hot water in buildings mainly from renewable sources. The proposed system is based on an optimal combination of solar thermal energy production, seasonal heat storage and the use of highly efficient heat pump.

“BUILDING AND DISTRICT Thermal Retrofit and Management Solutions.”   The THERMOSS project aims to produce an outstanding contribution to the wider deployment of advanced building heating and cooling technologies in the EU, addressing the challenge of 30% energy consumption reduction in buildings and 20% in districts. THERMOSS was funded by the European Commission under its HORIZON 2020 programme for Energy-Efficient Buildings. Twelve partners from EU and Switzerland will collaborate for the 42 months of the project duration.
