OBJECTIVES

  • HyCool project mission is to increase the current use of solar heat in industry processes.
  • The project proposes the coupling of a new Fresnel CSP Solar thermal collectors system with Hybrid Heat Pumps (a “two-in one” combination of adsorption and compressor based heat pumps) for a wider output temperature range (Solar Heating & Cooling), and a wide range of design and operational configurations to increase the potential implementation of the proposed solar heat in industrial environments.

INNOVATIVE ASPECTS

  • Highly efficient and flexible hybrid chiller technology:
    It will take advantage of the renewable solar heat source to drive a sorption module, thus increasing the electric efficiency of a vapor compression chiller.
  • Solar cooling:
    Through a patented innovation Fresnex will be able to significantly reduce the system costs compared to existing technologies while parallel reducing the complexity of integration.
  • Phase change materials (PCMs)
  • AR/VR BIM-based Digital Twins for Training and Communication activities

TECHNOLOGIES

IMPACTS

  • Depending on local energy prices, irradiation, use and potential incentive programs, your ROI will be between 4 and 8 years.
  • Electricity consumption and greenhouse gas emissions will be reduced up to 50%.
