One size fits all energy solution
According to the International Energy Agency, buildings and the building sector account for 36 % of total global energy consumption and approximately 40 % of CO2 emissions. Demand for energy is growing; governments, businesses, and individuals are recognising the need to reduce dependence on fossil fuels and transition to renewable energy. EU-funded scientists are developing an important combined heat and power solution that harvests solar energy and ambient heat and also burns biomass. It is expected to meet all our heating and cooling as well as electricity needs for any building type or size without worrying about limited sunlight hours or frigid temperatures.
