Passive House with Integrated Zero Emission Climate Control System
About the project
The project will demonstrate and test outdoor operational performance of novel solar façade elements which provide daylighting and solar shading; photovoltaic electricity with battery storage; and heat generation with thermal storage.
The solar façade elements will be coupled to heat pumps, heat-recovery ventilation, and energy storage systems to demonstrate how they can be used together to realise thermally comfortable NZEB concepts, tailored for the Northern Irish context, future-proofed against changing climate extremes, and proven to secure near-zero energy bills.
Driven by the growing commercial demand for NZEB solutions, the proposed PHIZECCS project builds upon the successful CE-SEA project outcomes to progress CoPVG and HyPVT innovations from TRL6 to TRL7 prototype demonstration in an operational environment.
