Webinar description

Providing very comfortable and healthy buildings in an energy-efficient, sustainable and financially viable way, and ready to play in the smart grid?

hybridGEOTABS buildings offer huge potential to meet the key goals for buildings in the European green deal. Building-integrated radiant heating and cooling systems and geothermal heat pumps are a match made in heaven, enabling very high energy efficiencies and the flexibility of thermal storage, while providing freedom of space and high thermal comfort to the user.


The hybrid combination of this GEOTABS concept with additional systems, enlarges the application field to a variety of mid-size and large buildings throughout Europe.


The smart controller (a Model Predictive Controller) continuously optimises the real-life building performance and can govern the interaction with renewables and the grid. This training introduces the hybridGEOTABS concept and its key assets and is accessible for everyone fascinated by sustainable building.



Ideal for everyone interested in sustainable and comfortable buildings, targeting stakeholders in the wide building and energy sector: building owners and managers, building and energy professionals (e.g. architects, HVAC- and control-engineers, contractors), policy-makers, researchers, architecture and engineering students...
