Combined Heat, Cooling and Power from Solar Energy and Biomass, TRESERT

As of: September 2020

Objective and activities

The aim of this project was to demonstrate an innovative technology for the decentralised provision of electrical energy, heat and refrigeration for air conditioning using solar energy and biomass, and to publicise it among potential cooperation partners in the South-East Asian region. To this end, a reference plant was built in the Solar Park at the School of Renewable Energy Technology (SERT). By conducting training and information events, the project helped the technology to become more widespread, tapping new potential for reducing CO2, and promoting the region’s climate-neutral development.
