The overall objective of the ZEOSOL project is to further develop and validate an affordable cooling and heating product for small-sized superior energy performance buildings, and bringing this innovation within a timeframe of 24 months to the market.

The concept consists of combining two innovative components:

  1.  an adsorption chiller by Fahrenheit
  2. vacuum tube solar thermal collectors by Akotec

The system is designed to operate under intermittent heat supply of low-temperature solar thermal energy (below 95 oC). The innovation offers a complete solution for covering both heating (space heating and domestic hot water-DHW) and cooling without requiring any additional system (e.g. boiler or air-conditioning).
