The 10th edition of the International Conference on Applied Energy will take place during August 22-25, 2018, in Hong Kong, China. This year’s conference topic is “Innovative Solutions for Energy Transitions” with additional sub-topics of Clean Energy Conversion Technologies, Energy Management, Policy, Economics and Sustainability, Energy Sciences, Energy Storage, Intelligent Energy Systems, Mitigation Technologies, Geoenergy, and Renewable Energy.

Urberoa is one of seven demo-sites of THERMOSS project used to show the project’s technology advantages. This demo-site is expected to demonstrate in practice 25% of energy saving at the building level, and 30% saving at a district level. It will do so by having one substation in Urberoa building complex equipped with the hybrid heat pump, and one substation equipped with hybrid heat pump in combination with solar panels. The first substation provides energy for domestic hot water to 56 apartments, and the second one to 62 apartments. Out of these, altogether 5 apartments will be monitored under the THERMOSS project.

Due to low carbon potential, district heating and cooling (DHC) systems are becoming increasingly popular. However, most of these systems are not operating at the expected performance level. Representatives of the THERMOSS project from Cardiff University, Dr Yu Li, Prof. Yacine Rezgui, and Dr Hanxing Zhu, wrote an article entitled “District heating and cooling optimization and enhancement – Towards integration of renewables, storage and smart grid” concerning optimization and enhancement of DHC systems.

We are pleased to announce that the THERMOSS project will be presented at Sustainable Places workshop “District Energy Systems: A collaborative exchange of results on planning, operation and modelling for energy efficiency”. The workshop will be held within the 6th edition of Sustainable Place Conference and organized by INDIGO Project. The event is a collaborative workshop among EU funded projects in the field of District Heating and Cooling. Other projects presented there include: E2District, Flexynets, PENTAGON, OPTi, CoolHeating, SDHp2m, PlanHeat, InDeal and H-Disnet.
