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.

Evaluation of thermal comfort and energy performance of a case study in vernacular architecture of Cyprus

A new conference paper by University of Cyprus – FOSS Research Centre for Sustainable Energy – was presented at the PLEA 2020 conference – Sustainable Architecture and Urban Design. The conservation and rehabilitation of buildings of vernacular architecture is a sustainable approach, not only because it leaves a small ecological footprint, compared to the erection of new …

HYBUILD Austrian pilot

Work is ongoing at the Langenwang Austrian pilot, to prepare the installation of the HYBUILD hybrid storage system. The continental climate system will be installed at this pilot site. The maximum heating power consumption expected after the foreseen retrofitting operations is 10 kW. The following technologies will be applied in the building: PV, PCM thermal latent storage, Heat pump.

Evaluation of in-situ coated porous structures for hybrid heat pumps

One of the main limitations for the wide diffusion of sorption systems, either as stand-alone and in hybrid configurations, is the low heat transfer inside the adsorber, as well as the low volumetric cooling power. In this context, HYBUILD partners (CNR ITAE, AKG, Fahrenheit and Mikrometal) have just released a new scientific paper which reports …
