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.

Retrofitting public buildings is crucial to meeting Europe’s energy efficiency goals. But can new knowledge in retrofitting be replicated across the EU   The move to energy efficient buildings is on. Two European directives are gently nudging things along, by requiring that 3% of public buildings be renovated every year and that public buildings be almost energy zero by 2018.

The challenges of integrating new energy-saving systems in occupied buildings   It can be extremely challenging to integrate technologies using renewables sources, such Parabolic Trough Solar Collectors (PTC), a biomass boiler, a cogeneration unit based on Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC), an absorption chiller and a cooling tower. But this challenge is even greater when these energy reduction systems need to be coupled to an existing and occupied building.
