The EU funded CHESS-SETUP project (Combined HEat SyStem by using Solar Energy and heaT pUmPs) aims to design, implement and promote a reliable, efficient and profitable system able to supply heating and hot water in buildings mainly from renewable sources. The proposed system is based on an optimal combination of solar thermal energy production, seasonal heat storage and the use of highly efficient heat pump.

CHESS SETUP, a European project seeking buildings’ energy self-sufficiency
Low temperature thermal demand (Domestic Hot Water and heating) is worth 50% of the apartment buildings’ needs. A new European project looks for the most efficient solution to cover up this demand with solar energy, even during the months with the lowest level of solar radiation.
