POLYSMARTProject reference: 19988
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV
Polygeneration with advanced small and medium scale thermally driven air-conditioning and refrigeration technology
Total cost:EUR 14 314 918
EU contribution:EUR 7 283 574
Topic(s):SUSTDEV-1.1.4 - Polygeneration
Call for proposal:FP6-2004-TREN-3
Funding scheme:IP - Integrated Project
Key goal of the proposed project is to support the development of a new market for polygeneration: small and medium capacity trigeneration. The operating time of a CHP system can be significantly increased by using the heat for thermally driven cooling and thereby a remarkable improvement of cost efficiency is achieved. Therefore the proposed integrated project aims to demonstrate the cost-effectiveness and reliability of small-scale combined heat, cooling and power (CHCP) units for a wide range of buildings and industrial applications. Key actors in the project are the majority of today's manufacturers of thermally driven cooling machines in Europe and manufacturers of CHP systems.
Furthermore the consortium includes utilities, engineering consultants, energy agencies, end-users and research institutions. 8 demonstration sub-projects using different thermally driven cooling technologies at 13 sites in 8 European countries for a wide spectrum of applications will be carried out as a main activity.
