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. 


An innovative approach to Thermal Energy Storage and Self-Sufficiency in Buildings

The use of Thermal Energy Storage (TES) in buildings in combination with space heating, domestic hot water and space cooling has recently received much attention. End of 2019, the CHESS-SETUP H2020 project organised a webinar in which HYBUILD participated together with two other research projects RELaTED and SunHorizon. The presentation from the Webinar is accessible at the following link …
