What happened at “TOWARDS LOW CARBON HEATING AND COOLING IN BUILDINGS” workshop 1024 768 SunHorizon Project

On the 12th March 2019 in the framework of ISH Messe Frankfurt, SunHorizon, Heat4Cool and  Thermoss projects presented their three different approaches on how to step towards the decarbonisation of the heating and cooling sectors in buildings to more than 50 people.

The event was organised to promote the projects’ sustainable energy solutions and how they are aligned with the effort that the European Commission is putting in the innovation, researches and funding innovative H2020 projects (introduction on the new energy regulations and funds was made by Mrs. Eva Hoos from DG Energy).

As we know, buildings account for approximately 40% of energy consumption and 36% of CO2 emissions in Europe; to achieve full decarbonisation of the building sector, we must promote the installation of smart heating & cooling systems. 

The event aimed at stressing how these three H2020 projects are presenting available and fiable renewable energy solutions that will reduce energy consumption, CO2, increasing cost savings and thermal comfort for the users. Solutions are available, we only need to promote their replicability.


From SunHorizon side, the presentations were:

  • Project presentation by Mr Stefano Barberis (RINA- Project Coordinator)
  • Adsorption and friends: Development of flexible solutions for solar thermal cooling, Fahrenheit –  Mrs Ursula Wittstadt
  • Solar and Heat pumps: how to couple the most socially accepted low carbon H&C technologies (BOOSTHEAT Mr Norbert Dischinger, TVP Solar Mr Guglielmo Cioni, DualSun Mr Jean-Marie Drap)
  • How Monitored data can make H&C more sustainable: Schneider Electric monitoring and communication system –  Mr Francesco Martinelli

You can find more details regarding the three projects below:

Heat4Cool is promoting the application of six technologies for the refurbishment of buildings. 

The SunHorizon project aims at unlocking the potential for a cost-effective solution based on innovative heat pumps and solar technologies. 

Thermoss aims to contribute to wider deployment of advanced building heating and cooling technologies and facilitate their connection with district heating.
