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.

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.

The programme will focus on accelerating clean innovations as a driver of success for the energy transition.
With over 160 energy innovations from which 50 are related to buildings, it is the innovation meeting point for the construction industry.
This year, a demonstration area, showcasing the clean innovations that are ready to be transferred will be featured for the first time. As well as more about cutting edge technologies in the pitching sessions, and valuable networking opportunities with the people that are making a difference in the energy panorama in Europe.
