The Adaptability of PhotoVoltaic-Thermal Collectors to Increase the Share of REnewable Energy Production for Heating-, Cooling-, and Electric-Energy in Systems of Buildings <<

Akronym PVT-RESyst
HFT project director Prof. Dr. habil. Ursula Eicker
Project partners German University Cairo (GUC)
Duration 01.06.2018 - 31.05.2020
Project description The main objectives of the PVT-RESyst project is to develop and demonstrate a system based on novel PVT technology capable of reducing significantly the primary energy consumption of the Egyptian residential sector. This system should be able to provide heating, cooling, domestic hot water (DHW) and electricity for new Egyptian buildings. Further on the system needs to be sustainable, affordable and adapted to Egyptian weather conditions in order to trigger proactive small and medium enterprise (SME) activities and allow a successful transfer of this technology to the Egyptian market creating a sustainable local innovation environment. A special aim of the project will be to strengthen the cooperation between academics and local companies by developing adapted business models that will support the creation of a lasting entity to exploit the project’s results. In this regard, a guideline for installers and planners will be one of the outputs of this project.
