The consortium has gathered at the premises of Bosch for the fifth General Assembly meeting in Lollar, Germany. We welcomed two new partners Riga Technical University and Solid Power who have introduced themselves and explained their roles in the project. We are currently discussing project progress then, later, all partners will participate in an exploitation workshop to agree on the future use of THERMOSS results.
With his 40% share of the heating market and estimated coverage of 50-75% of the new builds, Finland is the largest producer of district heating in the Nordics.
As if it’s not enough, their district heating network relies for the 90% on direct renewables and recycled heat!
With the explosion of available data, cognitive systems can learn, reason, and more effectively interact with users and their surrounding environments. It allows for higher levels of collaboration between humans and systems. These collaborative networks are the focus of the PRO-VE Conference, which will take place on September 17-19, 2018.
THERMOSS project partner FENIX TNT has organised a workshop focused on the production and installation of precast panels developed under the ECO-Binder project. The workshop will take place on September 20 in Treviso, Italy.
During this event, several H2020 projects will be displayed to the workshop’s participants. One of these projects is THERMOSS. FENIX representatives Barbora Blaskovicova and Petra Topolcanova will exhibit THERMOSS roll-up and brochures as well as answer specific questions about the project.

With increased awareness about the challenges of climate change, air quality and high energy consumption and with a desire for better quality of living and working, “My Journey Southampton” and “Future South” decided to organize Southampton’s first sustainability event. This event is created to propose opportunities for transformation of towns and cities. “Exhibitors Sustainable City Expo 2018” will take place on Wednesday, September 12, in Southampton, UK.
Visitors will hear from experts in the field of sustainability, planning and transport and enjoy a unique opportunity to chat with industry professionals and local businesses, while experiencing some of the products and services that are being offered. Two of the exhibitors are professor Patrick James and Victoria Aragon from Southampton University. At their stand, they will present Building and Energy Systems projects and show sensors and other monitoring equipment from the THERMOSS project.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Southampton!
From 10-13 September, Rapperswil (CH) will be hosting EuroSun2018 – the 12th International Conference on Solar Energy for Buildings and Industry. The conference gathers leading solar energy experts, policy makers and industry representatives to discuss the latest developments in the field. Comprising presentations from distinguished keynote speakers, poster exhibitions and meetings of experts in breakout sessions, the conference is well worth attending if you can get there.
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.
Two representatives of our project, Nicolas Lamaison from CEA and Gozde Unkaya from EXERGY, had an opportunity to present the THERMOSS project results, namely bidirectional substation and WARMe, during the Sustainable Places Conference 2018.
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.
