At the concluding meeting of the EU project A2PBeer in Austria last week, positive results from the final report were presented. The results from the 50 SunCool collectors that were installed in September 2016, showed the installation worked and delivered energy savings satisfactorily.
The installation is part of an EU-funded project that aims to demonstrate the energy saving potential with the world’s first solar thermal collector with built-in storage and cooling. The collectors are equivalent to those manufactured in the SunCool factory in China.
”With the encouraging results from the Ankara installation, we obtain another excellent reference to show for potential customers in Europe and Africa. The experience and lessons learned from this project will be valuable for our future SunCool installations, says Karl Bohman, CEO of SaltX Technology.
Abstract from the final A2PBeer report:
“A2PBeer has focused on the educational complex cafeteria building, where the SaltX absorption system and Parans/Toshiba/Tecnalia hybrid lighting have been installed. The SaltX system produces Domestic Hot Water (DHW) for the educational complex mainly for the dormitory buildings, and cooling that is used to improve the dining room’s air temperature during the hot spots of spring and autumn, since school complex is not used during summertime.
The collectors and the system were designed for supplementing the DHW boilers by warming up the city water before entering the boilers of the educational complex and improving the comfort conditions of the cafeteria area from > 27 ºC to 24ºC during the midday when the cafeteria is mainly used”

About the A2PBeer project
A2PBEER – www.a2pbeer.eu – is a publicly funded research project within the EU’s 7th Framework Programme and aims to demonstrate that it is possible to reach current Nearly Zero Energy Buildings requirements in the existing public buildings through affordable and adaptable new technologies. The objective of the project was to demonstrate various energy-saving technologies on public buildings in three European cities – Bilbao, Malmo and Ankara. The project involves 21 participants from 11 countries, and is led by the Spanish research institute Tecnalia.
