Training courses for installers of small-scale renewable energy systems in buildings
The objective of the IEE Install+RES project was to establish training courses for the qualification of trainers and the certification of installers of renewable energy systems (biomass, solar, PV and heat pumps) in buildings. The target groups were installers (with working experience as plumbers, roofers or electricians) and trainers (as teachers, engineers and professors).

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.

Die BINE Projektinfo präsentiert ein energieeffizientes Quartiersprojekt in der Münchner Innenstadt. Im Stadtteil Haidhausen wurde von der städtischen Wohnungsgesellschaft GWG ein Komplex aus mehreren Mehrfamilienhäusern aus den 1950er Jahren energetisch saniert, nachverdichtet und CO2-neutral mit Wärme versorgt. Das Kernstück des Nahwärmeheizsystems ist eine Gasmotor-Wärmepumpe, die Grundwasser als Wärmequelle nutzt und die Gebäude beheizt und das Trinkwarmwasser erzeugt.

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.
