HYBUILD focuses on the development of two innovative compact hybrid electrical/thermal storage systems for stand-alone and district connected buildings. The project aims at developing cost-effective and environmental-friendly solutions, while ensuring comfort conditions in residential buildings located in two different climates: Mediterranean climate where cooling is critical; and Continental climate where a stronger focus is put on heating demand. The project is led by the Spanish group COMSA Corporación and it associates 21 partners from 11 EU countries. It started in October 2017 and is running for 4 years. The project was selected as part of the Energy-efficient Buildings Public-Private partnership. http://www.hybuild.eu/
The overall objective of the ZEOSOL project is to develop a new advanced solar cooling and heating product, using advanced heat exchanger technology and integrating a heat pump for covering peak demand. http://zeosol.eu/
Project acronym: ONSITE
Project full title: Operation of a Novel Sofc-battery Integrated hybrid for Telecommunication Energy systems
The overall objective of ONSITE is the development of a proof-of-concept based on SOFC/ZEBRA batteries hybrid technology with progress beyond state-of-the-art and towards the telecom market requirements.
Each separate subsystem, developed as a part of the final hybrid system, has its own set of objectives that is simulated and optimized for the Proof of Concept system objectives, to reach:
– longest possible lifetime,
– high system efficiency over the whole lifetime,
– high reliability (uptime),
– limited cost for operation and maintenance,
– competitiveness in terms of investment costs compared with conventional technologies.
Additionally, investigations will be carried out on the feasibility of combining the SOFC/ZEBRA system with a heat pump, to discover the potential to boost the efficiency to a higher level and supply cooling as well.
The outcome of this project will enable the consortium to demonstrate a concept fulfilling telecom market requirements and will enable the partnership (primarily HTceramix as SOFC developer, FIAMM as system integrator, and Ericsson as OEM) to move to the next steps (industrialization & market) of field test readiness, together with a scale up in production and cost optimization.
