“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.
This project proposes to concentrate on 4 sets of technology package retrofit solutions. These can be applied for stand alone residential and district connected buildings (heating and cooling) covering different climates in Europe .
The project proposes an industry-focused, innovation-intensive approach to ease the introduction of cutting-edge heating and cooling technologies for building energy retrofitting at European level, targeting residential buildings and buildings connected to District Heating and Cooling (DHC) networks. Moreover, THERMOSS seeks to increase the efficiency of non-connected residential building through a possible connection to the district heating grid.
It will follow a development process, composed of five main steps: technology database creation, technology packages refinement, technology package sizing toolbox, thermal energy flow algorithm, integration and validation.
Several different demo sites located in Finland, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Spain and France will be used for validation of results in different climatic conditions.
THERMOSS is coordinated by EXERGY LTD and is running in cooperation with the following 12 European partners: Schneider Electric SPA, BOSCH THERMOTECHNIK GMBH, STAM SRL, GIROA SOCIEDAD ANONIMA, FENIX TNT SRO, PLANAIR SA, D'APPOLONIA SPA, CARDIFF UNIVERSITY, CENTRE SCIENTIFIQUE ET TECHNIQUE DU BATIMENT, COMMISSARIAT A L ENERGIE ATOMIQUE ET AUX ENERGIES ALTERNATIVES, CSEM CENTRE SUISSE D'ELECTRONIQUE ET DE MICROTECHNIQUE SA - RECHERCHE ET DEVELOPPEMENT, UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHAMPTON.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No 723562.
