HYCOOL Project Meeting in Messina, Italy

On the 22nd and 23rd of November the National Research Council of Italy (CNR) hosted in Messina the 1st General Assembly of the HYCOOL project. Partners evaluated the progress made so far, the challenges ahead of us and their possible solutions. HyCool - Industrial Cooling through Hybrid system based on solar heat - is a project co-funded by the European Union, aimed at increasing the current use of Solar Heat in Industry Processes. To do so the project proposes the coupling of a new Fresnel CSP Solar thermal collectors (FCSP) system with specially build Hybrid Heat Pumps (HHP) – a “two-in one” combination of adsorption and compressor based heat pumps – for a wider output temperature range (Solar Heating & Cooling –SHC-), and a wide range of design and operational configurations to increase the potential implementation of the proposed Solar Heat in industrial environments. To learn more about the project, take a look at the project website.
