Sustainable energy source for nearly zero energy buildings

Project ID: TA04021243
Funding provider: Technological Agency of the Czech Republic
Investigator at UCEEB: doc. Ing. Tomáš Matuška, Ph.D.
Project duration: 1. 2. 2015 – 31. 12. 2017
Partners: Regulus, s.r.o.

Target of the project is a developed advanced energy system for heat, cold and electricity supply to the building with a high degree of autonomy to achieve a nearly zero energy building standard with a payback time under 10 years (at today energy prices) and with high share of renewable energy sources use (above 70%). Specific prototypes will be developed and manufactured for the system: DC heat pump with controlled electric input for heating and cooling, combined water store for heating, cooling and hot water production and intelligent controller. Energy system will be tested and evaluated in demonstration installation in combination with PV system and longterm ground heat a cold storage built within the building. Then, the concept will be economically optimized for wider application in future building development.
