HYCOOL Held Its (Virtual) General Assembly on 17th November 2020

After two years and a half since the start of the project, HYCOOL partners met for its 5th General Assembly. The leaders of each on-going Work Package had a presentation about the progress of their work and planned for the next period, considering risks, opportunities and challenges.

The HYCOOL team is excited on announcing that pilot implementation has already started. The construction of the technical rooms at the Givaudan demo site are nearly completed, which will allow to start the installation of the technology provided by FAHRENHEIT, AIT and ECOTHERM in the upcoming weeks. At the Bo de Debò demo site, the civil works for the technical room have already started and will be completed shortly.

We will keep an eye on the pilot progress for the next months!

Hycool’s 3rd General Assembly in Rimini

Rimini, a beautiful Italian city on the Adriatic coast served as the center of operations for the third meeting of the Hycool consortium, celebrated between November 5th and 6th. This location was chosen to also boost the project’s dissemination activities at the Ecomondo fair, especially under the KeyEnergy section; one of the two main exhibition events on renewable energy and energy efficiency in Italy. 

 

 

During the meeting, technical advances regarding the installations that will be made at the pilot sites were discussed. Those advances concerned the choice of the absorber material, the monitoring of the material’s degradation, as well as the integration of the system CSP including energy management tools. The consortium also discussed the system integration for the high-performance solar heat pump components. Decisions were also made regarding the demonstration activities to be made in the future.
