As part of the THERMOSS Project, the innovative heating technology packages provided by BOSCH are initially tested in the facilities of CEA INES, the French National Institute for Solar Energy located in Bourget du Lac, before being installed in real demonstration sites.
Currently, CEA is running tests to evaluate Bosch technology packages primary energy savings. In the frame of WP5 “Deployment and Demonstration”, the tests are now performed with the heating substation HIU E PLUS from Bosch (HIU – “Heat Interface Unit”). The latter is meant for individual instantaneous space heating (from 1.5 to 15kW) and instantaneous domestic hot water preparation (until 39kW). After a positive result from the test, the new heating substations will replace the older components of building block apartments in Southampton, in collaboration with Southampton University.
