SunCool- Project Karlstad

A project to demonstrate solar thermal collectors for heating and cooling through a 180 m² collector installation at a commercial building in Karlstad

 

Project description
Goal
  • Demonstrate solar thermal collectors for heating and cooling through a 180 m² collector installation at a commercial building in Karlstad, Sweden. The collectors shall deliver Air Conditioning and Heating.
  • Dissemination of the project results to problem-owners in Europe and other regions is a key element in the project.
Expected results
  • Reduction of primary energy consumption for the targeted need (after parasitic losses) 90%- 50% reduction of investment cost compared to existing solutions on the market.
  • Reduction of CO2 emissions: 438 kg/year and m².
Project actions include
  • Planning and technical preparation.
  • Assembly and install the solar collectors.
  • Demonstration of operation of SunCool collectors in a commercial environment.
  • Monitoring.
  • Dissemination of results.

 

The project reference number is LIFE11 ENV/SE/838 SUNCOOL.
