ROCOCO - Reduction of costs of solar cooling systems [Print to PDF] [Print to RTF]
Total cost:EUR 494 478
EU contribution:EUR 494 478
Call for proposal:FP6-2004-TREN-3
Funding scheme:SSA - Specific Support Action
For a few years, drastically increasing climatisation demand for buildings in Europe leads to increasing electricity requests. In order to reduce CO2 emissions and greenhouse gas emissions a substantial part of the electricity needed should be generated from renewable sources. Many RTD, supporting and coordination activities took place in the past, but still barriers prevent the market diffusion of new technologies.
The proposed project therefore aims at the cost-competitive deployment of solar-assisted air conditioning technologies instead of conventional operated ones in order to promote energy efficiency more actively. Consequently, the overall objective of the proposed work is to identify European wide cost reduction potential for Solar Cooling systems, based on the collection and dissemination of existing know-how of RTD and industrial participants that is not very widespread at the moment.
