On 1st and 2nd October, the General Assembly of the THERMOSS project gathered in Genoa for a GA and review meeting. The new Project Officer Eleftherios Bourdakis and PTA Daniel Garcia-Almiñana also attended the meeting held at the RINA facilities.

We were happy to discuss the recently finished and upcoming goals of the THERMOSS project with all our partners and we already look forward to the next meeting. Our project is reaching its final stage and we cannot wait to share with you all results of the THERMOSS project.

The tenth edition of the European Congress on Energy Efficiency and Sustainability in Architecture and Urbanism (EESAP 10) and the third International Congress on Advanced Construction (CICA 3) took place on 11th & 12th September in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain. The congress was especially aimed at students, professionals and researchers and around 300 people attended this year.

THERMOSS partner – Giroa-Veolia took part in the EESAP10-CICA3. Giroa-Veolia presented THERMOSS project at the information point booth among other projects.

Jose Alonso Urquijo (Commercial Director of Giroa-Veolia) also participated in a round table about energy efficiency and was able to comment to all attendees the benefits of the R&D projects in which Giroa-Veolia currently works.

At the end of the month, our General Assembly meeting will take place at the RINA Headquarters in Genova, Italy. The meeting is planned for three days – starting on 30th September and ending on 2nd October.
We look forward to meeting all of our partners.

The 3rd International Congress on Advanced Construction (CICA3) together with the 10th edition of The European Congress on Energy Efficiency and Sustainability in Architecture and Urbanism (EESAP 10) will take place on the 11th & 12th September in Vitoria, Spain.

We are happy that THERMOSS project will be presented at CICA3 by Gorka Naveran Lanz from Veolia. You can see the full programme here & register to the event via this link.

The principle of the 2-WAY SUBSTATION (2WAY SST) is to return unused energy to the supply network with the highest effi­ciency. The objective is to create a system with high feed-in temperature from solar energy.

For that purpose, 2WAY SST uses Compact Heat Exchangers, Variable Speed Pumps, Controlled Valves and Controlled System. At CEA-INES facilities in South-East France (Le Bourget du Lac), the assembling of the 2WAY SST is in progress.

Two out of three heat exchangers (H1 & H2) and pumps (P1 & P2) have been already installed in June. An extra loop emulating the sanitary loop of the building is being set up, with the pressure tests already being passed.


From 10th to 12th July 2019, the International Conference on Energy and Cities (ICEC) was held at the University of Southampton, UK. We are happy that the THERMOSS project was presented with both an oral presentation and a conference stand.

The oral presentation titled “English Domestic Occupancy Profiles” was led by Victoria Aragon from University of Southampton on the 11th July during the Low Energy Building Session. It focussed on THERMOSS-funded research into domestic occupancy profiles. Our THERMOSS UK demo sites were also presented as case studies for energy and occupant behaviour monitoring.

The conference was a great opportunity to meet fellow energy-efficiency enthusiasts at our stand and we look forward to the next event.

THERMOSS project will be presented at the International Conference on Energy and Cities (ICEC) by our partners from University of Southampton. Our finding will be presented on a poster and Victoria Aragon will talk about “English domestic occupancy profiles” on Thursday during the “Low Energy Building Design” session. THERMOSS project’s UK demo sites will be presented as examples of occupant behaviour monitoring.

ICEC will be held in Southampton, UK from 10th to 12th July 2019. Find more details about the event and a full programme at

We are happy to share with you great news regarding one of our cluster projects. The ExcEED project platform and its tools are now available and free to use by the general public.

The main goal of the ExcEED project is to gather and analyze data from various European buildings. The ExcEED database can be used by other EU projects like THERMOSS, ensuring an efficient match between supply and demand and well-planned residential building retrofitting.

The H2020 EU-funded project ExcEED launches a new platform orchestrating seamless integration of heterogeneous data related to building energy performances. The platform is freely available until September 2019 to those uploading buildings data. You can get access to the platform on the ExcEED website after completing a registration form.

Read all the details about the platform at ExcEED website.
