The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

hybridGEOTABS first newsletter contains a short introduction to the technology and objectives of the research project. It also gives a summary of progress as shared at the recent project meeting in Finland, in particular, the chosen demo buildings and technical developments.

Geothermal energy is limitless, ubiquitous and free at the point of use. When combined with the very high energy efficiency of TABS and application range of hybrid systems, it offers huge potential to meet heating and cooling needs in Europe, and reduce CO2 emissions.

GEOTABS is an acronym for the combination of geothermal heat pumps with thermally activated building systems (TABS).  It is an innovative clean technology for energy efficient and healthy buildings which has several advantages; the radiant heating and cooling system has already proven to be one of the most comfortable ways to condition indoor spaces, especially multi-storey offices.

Una decarbonizzazione dell'energia in Europa il sistema senza la decarbonizzazione del settore del riscaldamento è impossibile. Tuttavia, gli sforzi attualmente in corso sono troppo lenti. Trasformando il settore del riscaldamento -dalla ricerca e sviluppo alla produzione, l'installazione e la manutenzione richiede un gigantesco sforzo da parte di tutti gli stakeholder. A causa della distorta prezzi dell'energia, le condizioni di mercato non sono adatti per innescare il cambiamento necessario.

A decarbonisation of Europe’s energy system without a decarbonisation of the heating sector is impossible. Yet, efforts currently under way are too slow. Transforming the heating industry -from research and development to manufacturing, installation and maintenance- requires a gigantic effort by all stakeholders. Due to the distorted prices for energy, current market conditions are not suitable to trigger the necessary change.

L' DecarbHeat initiative mira a riunire i principali attori del sistema di riscaldamento e raffreddamento, l'industria e le altre principali parti interessate. Insieme sono in grado di realizzare la visione di un 100% decarbonatati Europea sistema di riscaldamento e raffreddamento di una realtà. L'iniziativa consiste in una DecarbHeat Industria Pegno and DecarbHeat Dichiarazione di Sostegno. Both sarà formalmente aperta alla firma presso l' #DecarbHeat 2017 Forum a Bruxelles l ' 11-12 Maggio 2017.

Le BINE Themeninfo II/2016 "Efficiente riscaldamento & raffreddamento degli edifici non residenziali-" viene illustrato come utilizzare ambientali, energia per raffreddare o in combinazione con pompe di calore per riscaldare gli edifici non residenziali mediante termo-attiva i sistemi di costruzione. Si discute il basso exergy concetto che riflette sulla piscina termale comfort, mostra come funzionano le pompe di calore in modo efficiente e presenta operazione di management e strategie di controllo.

Earlier this year, in its Heating and Cooling Strategy, the European Commission addressed thermal energy for the first time in a consistent manner. This was timely, as decarbonising Europe’s energy system is impossible without decarbonising the heating and cooling sector.     The ‘Clean Energy Package’ that was published yesterday is a step in the right direction to enshrine the objectives of the Strategy in EU law.
