Heat recovery ventilation can be integrated into windows, walls, shutters, and heating and cooling units. HRV provides fresh air and improved climate control, while also saving energy. BRICKER will draw on this technology developed by Greencom. It meets the need of high performing refurbishment programmes particularly well.

Thermally activated cooling involves harnessing waste heat and using it for cooling applications. There are various techniques for achieving this and they can be applied to different types of building through the use of chillers. The methods for producing cold utilizing heat source are called thermally activated cooling. They include adsorption, absorption , desiccant cooling and trigeneration.
Biomass CHP plants are commonly used in district heating systems as well as in industries with high heating and cooling demand. The majority of biomass CHP systems commercially available are based on producing steam in combination with a steam turbine or producing thermal oil for an ORC (Organic Rankine Cycle) unit.
A sustainable lightweight ventilated façades constitutes a second skin outside the existing façade. A natural vented cavity is located between these two skins creating a void gap for “chimney effect”. In one of the demonstration buildings, around 1.300 m2 of external will be renovated with the ventilated façade researched in BRICKER.
By tracking the position of the sun, parabolic collectors can concentrate the solar radiation on a tube, thus heating the fluid which flows in the tube up to 250-300°C. The hot fluid can be used for many purposes This technology is already used for large solar power stations.
PCMs are materials that can adsorb and store thermal energy while its structural phase changes.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement No 609071
