This is a document providing an overview on passive heating and cooling technologies and their impact on the energy performance of buildings presented by Anna Staudt and Hans Erhorn from the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics concerning the CENSE project in Germany, with the funding from the EU’s Intelligent Energy Europe programme.
This is a brochure made by a Bulgarian company Bulgaria Therm about a solar concentrator which can be used for heating and cooling in a winter, such as in a summer period.
A comparison between this product and a solar collector is provided by graphics and schemes. Functional and technical characteristics are detailed and visually presented and the utility of its use in systems of cooling and heating are presented with a better ratio of efficiency than a solar collector. This solar concentrator can be linked to an energy network or to a private house.
This document includes detailed information about solar heating and cooling technologies for buildings. The document is one of the deliverables of the BRITA in PuBs project (Bringing Retrofit Innovation to Application in Public Buildings). This FP6 funded project involves different countries (Norway, Denmark, Italy, Greece, Germany, UK, Lithuania and Czech Republic). The aim is to develop demonstration projects in selected public buildings to demonstrate how renewable energies could be used.
This paper summarises the results of a study made in the framework of the European Commission co-founded project MEDISCO (Mediterranean Food and Agro Industry Applications of Solar Cooling Technologies).
The MEDISCO project (2006-2009) involves countries such as Italy, Spain, Germany, France, Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia. The objective is to assess (at a technical and economical level) the most appropriate solar thermally driven systems to tackle the current and future demand of the food and conservation industry sectors in the Mediterranean region.
