Deployment of novel Geothermal systems, technologies and tools for energy efficient building retrofitting (GEOFIT)
InnoEnergy Master Students in collaboration with Comsa Experts implement robust control strategies for integration of enhanced geothermal systems in energy efficient building retrofitting.
Retrofitting has been considered as one of the most efficient and renewable approach to attain sustainability goals for existing buildings. From a technical perspective, heating and cooling (H/C) system retrofitting is defined as upgrading existing building performance over the long-lease term, such as by increasing energy efficiency, decreasing overall energy demand and providing better indoor environment for occupants. However, large scale implementation of easily installed and efficient H/C solutions is still plagued by lack of technical guidelines and efficient decision-making methods for existing European building.
Testimonial – Gisela Soley, R&D Dpt. Technical Area and Innovation
“The Engineering and Business Case (R) proposed by InnoEnergy is a great opportunity for students to face a real project which enables them to practice their background and skills acquired, as well as sharing different points of view with sector professionals, in a competitive and rewarding environment. Undoubtedly, it has been an enriching experience for both parties”
