News & Events

The THERMOSS project was presented by Petra Colantonio from FENIX TNT during the Workshop of the Partnership
in Public and Private Sector in HORIZON 2020. The event was organised by the Technology centre CAS in Prague,
the Czech Republic and took place on 24th May 2017.
The aim of the workshop was to inform about results made during the programs PPP Factories of the Future,
Energy-efficient Buildings and SPIRE a Photonics.

The THERMOSS Leaflet and Roll Up Banner to be used during dissemination events were designed by EXERGY and can be downloaded from the section Documents.

The aim of the leaflet is to present main information about the project and to provide a simple form of familiarisation with the project to the general public. It gives the overview of the project concept, goals, approach and impact.

During 22nd and 23rd March 2017, the THERMOSS (Building and District Thermal Retrofit and Management Solutions) 13 members from six different EU countries and Switzerland met in Le Bourget du Lac for the first project update meeting, which furthermore saw the participation of the Project Technical Advisor, Daniel Garcia. 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.
