HANDLE is a solution that will hybridise in a single solar panel the generation of electricity and heat. It integrates the system with an advanced heat pump and control system.
In today's society, a significant part of energy consumption, in the form of electricity and heat, is located in buildings: residential, industrial, and tertiary.
There is a mega-trend towards buildings with virtually zero energy demand (nZED). However, existing technologies do not offer a solution that bring together sustainability criteria (renewable generation), technical feasibility (integral and simultaneous solutions for heat and electricity) and economic competitiveness for users.
Enormous market (energy in buildings), very scalable, the worldwide annual energy consumption of buildings amounts to:
- Thermal = ~ €1,500B
- Electric = ~ €650B
- TRL 7
- Protected by Software Registry
- The opportunity to participate in the commercial exploitation of HANDLE®
