The objective of this project is to support industrial manufacturers and engineering companies of heating and cooling systems in their development, by introducing more renewable energy sources in their technology. Multi-energy sources, for heating and cooling purposes, are considered to have a large potential in contributing to the penetration of renewable energy sources for domestic, building and industrial applications. But it requires that conventional heating and cooling systems have to be adapted or changed for incorporating renewable energy sources.
Nowadays, the heating, ventilating and air-conditioning industries are the actors which have access to the market, and they provide services using mainly fossil fuels or electricity as energy sources. The objective is to have them using renewable energy, combining conventional and renewable sources and proposing environmental cost-effective products.
