HYBUILD is an EU Horizon 2020-funded project, coordinated by COMSA CORPORACIÓN, which will develop two innovative compact hybrid electrical/thermal storage systems for stand-alone and district connected buildings.

HYBUILD aims at developing cost-effective and environmental-friendly solutions, while ensuring comfort conditions in residential buildings located in two different climates: Mediterranean climate where cooling is critical; and Continental climate where a stronger focus is put on heating demand.


Funded by the European Union

The HYBUILD project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement n° 768824.

Horizon 2020 is the financial instrument implementing the Innovation Union, a Europe 2020 flagship initiative aimed at securing Europe’s global competitiveness. It is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever. It promises more breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market. 


HYBUILD at the R-EVOLUTION event | 23 November, Anglet, France

Our HYBUILD project will be present at the R-EVOLUTION event organised by our partner NOBATEK-INEF4. After two editions to discuss the design-construction links in 2018 and the Low-tech / High-tech opposition in 2019, R-EVOLUTION returns in 2021 with a new scale: zoom on energy systems, artificial intelligence and high-performance envelopes, these shadow heroes, who are …

A Fast-Reduced Model for an Innovative Latent Thermal Energy Storage for Direct Integration in Heat Pumps

A new MDPI Applied Sciences paper presenting HYBUILD outcomes led by our partner CNR ITAE has just been published. In the present paper, the numerical modeling of an innovative latent thermal energy storage unit, suitable for direct integration into the condenser or evaporator of a heat pump is presented. The Modelica language, in the Dymola …

Experimental demonstration of an air-source heat pump application using an integrated phase change material storage as a desuperheater for domestic hot water generation

A new journal article presenting HYBUILD outcomes has just been released in Applied Energy. This paper is led by our partner AIT, the Austrian Institute of Technology. Heat pumps with a three-media refrigerant/phase change material (PCM) water heat exchanger (RPW-HEX), integrated in the hot superheated section after the compressor, have a promising potential for electric energy savings. …
