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.

Deep Learning Optimal Control for a Complex Hybrid Energy Storage System

Deep Reinforcement Learning (DRL) proved to be successful for solving complex control problems and has become a hot topic in the field of energy systems control, but for the particular case of thermal energy storage (TES) systems, only a few studies have been reported, all of them with a complexity degree of the TES system …

Hybrid Cascade Heat Pump and Thermal-Electric Energy Storage System for Residential Buildings: Experimental Testing and Performance Analysis

The need for innovative heating and cooling systems to decarbonize the building sector is widely recognized. It is especially important to increase the share of renewables at building level by maximizing self-consumption and reducing the primary energy demand. This new MDPI Energies journal paper, led by our partner CNR ITAE, presents the results on a …
