Ongoing Projects

  • SaLüH!
    Renovation of MFH with small apartments - Affordable technical solutions for ventilation, heating and hot water
  • k-WP
    In the project k-WP funded by the Tyrolian government, an air-to-water heat pump with a heat power of 2.5 kW is developed. A reversible refrigeration circuit provides the energy required for de-icing the brine operated evaporator.
  • SINFONIA
    Smart INitiative of cities Fully cOmmitted to iNvest in Advanced large-scaled energy solutions
  • DALEC Licht-Energie-Simulation
    Day- and Artificial Light with Energy Calculation
  • IEA Task 56
    This Task will focus on the critical analysis, simulation, laboratory test and onsite monitoring of envelope systems entailing elements that use and/or control incident solar energy, having one or more of the following uses: To deliver renewable thermal or/and electric energy to the systems providing heating, cooling and ventilation to buildings To reduce heating and cooling demands of buildings, while controlling daylight
  • IEA Task 55
    Towards the Integration of Large SHC Systems into District Heating and Cooling (DHC) Networks The Task aims to develop technical and economic requirements for a commercial market introduction of solar district heating and cooling (DHC) in a broad range of countries.
  • FACEcamp
    The FACEcamp project aims at strengthening a long-term transnational cooperation among companies and R&I entities in the field of advanced façade systems for healthy, comfortable and energy efficient buildings.
