Dr. Michael Papapetrou from WIP, the RES4BUILD project coordinator, visited project partners NCSRD in Athens, Greece on 27 July 2021. This was the first in-person project visit since early 2020 due to the COVID pandemic, with travel restrictions having recently eased. Dr. George Kosmadakis from NCSRD shared the progress of the pilot building preparations and discussed the system configuration and the setup of the different components.
Most of the components and sensors of the pilot system are available and the installation will begin in September 2021.
The Renovation Wave aims to accelerate improvements in the energy performance of 35 million buildings across Europe by 2030.
RES4BUILD partners DTU have published a new paper - Impact of hysteresis on caloric cooling performance in International Journal of Refrigeration.
