SunHorizon project aims to demonstrate that the proper combination of technologies (Technology Packages -TP) such as solar panels (PV, hybrid, thermal) and heat pumps (compression, adsorption, reversible) managed with a controller with pre/pro-active maintenance, and ML capabilities can avoid waste energy, maximize energy from RES, increase self-consumption, reduce bills and cut of CO2 emissions.
- Increase SunHorizon H&C technologies performances
- Promote cloud based functional monitoring for H&C purposes by developing a platform and a Smart End User Interface
- Reduce SunHorizon H&C technologies CAPEX and OPEX
- Demonstration of SunHorizon Innovations in different EU countries and type of buildings
- Promote the replication of SunHorizon Concept
- Dissemination and Capacity Building
- Improvement of the SunHorizon technologies by means of lab testing
- Development of monitoring and control platform with an end-user interface
- Integration of fault prediction capabilities and predictive control (ML, twin models, etc.).
- Validation in 8 demonstration cases (3 in Spain, 2 in Belgium,1 in Riga, 2 in Germany)
- Development of different business models, and replication feasibility studies
- Dissemination through EHPA association, papers and workshops
- SunHorizon will make 6 existing heating and cooling components more effective (increase 10-20% efficiency) and therefore more cost-efficient and affordable for everyone. Also, SunHorizon will exploit and demonstrate RES TPs to significantly contribute to reduce the dependency on fossil fuels for H&C in (residential and tertiary/commercial) buildings

Energy systems projects:
The objective of the Cervera HySGRID+ network is to strengthen the technological capacity of Spanish Technology Centres with a high level of complementarity and promote their solid cooperation with the ultimate aim of researching and developing new technological solutions that facilitate the creation of local energy positive balance communities (LEPC)
The overall objective of REWARDHeat is to demonstrate a new generation of low-temperature district heating and cooling (DHC) networks, which will be able to recover renewable (RES) and residual (WH) heat available at low temperatures.
The objective of the ReUseHeat project is to demonstrate pioneering, advanced, modular and replicable systems that make it possible to reuse the excess heat available on an urban scale.
The objective of the GIRTER project is to develop an intelligent energy management tool and aid in the operation of district heat and cold networks
