CEN Workshop Agreement on ‘ Experimental characterization of the hybrid heat pump module’ – open for public consultation

Industrial processes are often energy-intensive and the need for their efficient decarbonization is now at the forefront of governmental and corporate policies worldwide. However, solutions for the green transition of the industrial sector should be flexible, widely applicable, and reliable. Two-thirds of industrial energy consumption is related to heating and cooling processes and is becoming a major environmental problem. The integration of renewable thermal energy sources at industrial sites is therefore crucial.

This CEN Workshop Agreement specifies the experimental methodology to characterize a hybrid heat pump under real operating conditions to derive performance parameters, which can be also presented as a map of performance, and heat pump capacity as a function of operating conditions. The characterization includes a definition of testing rig configuration, a testing methodology, the list and definition of  relevant performance parameters and the procedure for calculating them. The characterization can be of help to make comparisons in terms of performance.

This CEN Workshop Agreement is valid to a vast range of industrial commercial and residential applications and to those wishing to:

  • turn renewable heat and waste heat into useful cooling effect;
  • minimize energy consumption;
  • reduce operational costs; and
  • lower CO2 footprint.

This workshop was motivated by the currently ongoing Horizon 2020 HYCOOL project “Industrial Cooling through Hybrid system based on Solar Heat” which aims to increase the use of solar heat in industrial processes by combining two key components: solar thermal collectors and hybrid adsorption-compression chillers to provide steam, heating, and cooling energy with greater efficiency.

All interested parties are invited to submit comments on the draft CWA to the Workshop secretary, Mrs. Natalia Ortiz de Zárate (nortiz@une.org), by 07 October 2022

HyCool Project participates in “sustainable places 2022” within the workshop: “RHC Solutions for Buildings and Industry – 3rd Edition”

Renewable energy technologies for heating and cooling are safe, clean, efficient and increasingly cost-competitive. In its vision 2050 prospective document, the European Technology and Innovation Platform on Renewable Heating and Cooling – RHC ETIP – envisions that 100% renewable energy-based heating and cooling (100% RHC) in Europe is possible by 2050.

This workshop is a continuation of the two previous RHC for Buildings and Industry Workshop at SP2020 and SP2021. Focused on the same topic which brought together a selection of H2020 EU-funded projects involving experts from the biomass, geothermal, solar thermal and heat pump sectors to discuss a common strategy for increasing the use of renewable energy technologies for heating and cooling for buildings and industry. 

Projects are again invited to pitch their progress and achievements to date. Interactive discussion slots will allow for opportunities to identify possible synergies, cooperation on horizontal issues or potential joint dissemination activities to maximise expected impacts. 

Session chair : Andrea Frazzica –  CNR-ITAE ( Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche  – Istituto di Tecnologie Avanzate per l’Energia “Nicola Giordano”)

HyCool Project will be part of this workshop in the session “RHC for industrial applications” together with:
