High solar fraction heating and cooling systems with combination of innovative components and methods
Total cost:EUR 2 574 867
EU contribution:EUR 1 144 539
Call for proposal:FP6-2005-TREN-4
Funding scheme:STREP - Specific Targeted Research Project
The HIGH-COMBI project aims at developing high solar fraction systems by an innovative combination of optimized solar heating, cooling and storage technologies. In the research phase, different configurations will be examined and optimized by detailed simulations. Demonstration plants will be constructed, using different combination of technologies, components and control strategies.
All demo plants will achieve high solar fractions values with a sound economy; for some of the plants more than 70% of coverage for the space heating, domestic hot water and cooling loads is expected to be reached. Innovative techniques, components and/or configurations will be examined (e.g. new storages, use of rejected heat during cooling, combined heating and cooling control etc.) Demonstration plants" monitoring data of about 15 months will be analysed, the simulation and design tools validated and the plants" performance evaluated.
