The EU funded CHESS-SETUP project (Combined HEat SyStem by using Solar Energy and heaT pUmPs) aims to design, implement and promote a reliable, efficient and profitable system able to supply heating and hot water in buildings mainly from renewable sources. The proposed system is based on an optimal combination of solar thermal energy production, seasonal heat storage and the use of highly efficient heat pump. The system operation will be optimised according to some external factors, as the electricity price or the users' requirements by using a smart control and management systems developed specifically for the project.
This proposal will be materialised in three pilot experiences: a small-scale prototype in Lavola's headquarters (Manlleu, Spain), 47 new dwellings located in Corby (United Kingdom) and a new sport centre located in Sant Cugat (Spain).
