demosites

Stephanie Gauthier from the University of Southampton attended the “International Conference on Renewable Energy 2019” (ICREN19). At the conference, Stephanie presented a new THERMOSS project poster, that summarizes all the basic information about our UK demo sites and you can download it here.

The ICREN19 is an annual meeting held in different countries focusing on international participation of researchers with an interest in renewable energy studies. This year, it took place from 24th to 26th April at the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, France.

THERMOSS project is trying to bring modern technologies to save energy and costs to all types of the built environment. The demo site in Riga consists of four detached houses – perfect examples of how THERMOSS technology packages can be used in a domestic house.

All the dwellings are not connected to the district heating network and the goal is to retrofit them with more efficient heating technologies and reduce the overall energy consumption and the carbon footprint.

Different houses are provided with different technologies. Micro fuel cells, gas absorption heat pumps and hybrid heat pumps are not usually used for heating in Latvia and THERMOSS project is trying to change that.
