renewable geothermal heat source, which will supply between 40 and 50% of our heat requirements.
A heat pump works on electricity. The heat pump extracts ‘free’ energy from the environment (renewable, green energy). With every kWh of energy from the ‘socket’ the heat pump generates 3 to 4 kWh ‘free’ from the environment. Therefore, a heat pump is up to 5 times more economical than an electric central heating boiler.
An absurdly comfortable EcoHouse which will produce enough energy of its own. A comfortable house, like you lay down in your bed, firmly tucked in a blanket, and still can move freely at the same time.
This was the idea of the EcoHouse of Jasper Jobse. Next year he will build his house in the new eco-neighborhood in Arnhem. Read More
EU Roadmap Energy Storage 2030 recommends options to boost the share of renewable energy in the European energy storage market
This Roadmap and recommendations aim to describe the future European needs for energy storage in the period towards 2020-2030. It also gives recommendations on which development will be required to meet the needs. Read More
different technologies can be used for micro-CHP, including stirling engines, rankine engines, internal combustion engines, and fuel cells.
Fuel cell based micro CHP units in homes and commercial buildings can help the electricity grid assimilate more renewables according to the Technical University of Denmark.
Scientists published a report explaining the need to create a market for electricity services to draw new technologies such as micro CHP into wider use and accelerate the cost reduction needed for general consumer uptake. Read More
