During this meeting, participants were offered the possibility to visit the French National Institute for Solar Energy experimental heating and cooling dynamic test facilities (INES), Chambery, France.

THERMOSS is committed to contributing to the sustainability of its demo sites. In order to accomplish this important task, various activities are being carried out.

On January 26, 2017, a visit to the Finish demo site, specifically, to the Micropolis buildings and the row houses took place. The demo will consist of the installation of a heat recovery system in Micropolis and a smart home controller system in the row houses, plus solar thermal panels installation in both cases.

On the 7th and 8th September 2016, the THERMOSS project held its Kick-Off Meeting in Brussels, Belgium. The THERMOSS project aims to produce an outstanding contribution to the wider deployment of advanced building heating and cooling technologies in the EU, addressing the challenge of 30% energy consumption reduction in buildings and 20% in districts. THERMOSS was funded by the European Commission under its HORIZON2020 programme for Energy-Efficient Buildings. 12 partners from EU and Switzerland will collaborate and will be led by Exergy Ltd for the 42 months of the project duration.
