FIT4MICRO - CLEAN AND EFFICIENT MICROCHCP BY MICROTURBINE BASED HYBRID SYSTEMS
is a Horizon Europe project aiming at developing a highly efficient microCHCP running on sustainable biofuels for increasing environmental sustainability of the building sector
BUILDING SECTOR IN EUROPE
Currently, most of European buildings are not energy-efficient, relying on fossil fuels for heating and cooling, using old technologies and wasteful appliances. They are also hard-to-decarbonise, with very low energy renovation rates, hence risking substantial delays in achieving the EU reduction targets. Moreover, these buildings are likely to account for 80% of housing stock in 2050, and hence are in need of sustainable solutions in order to meet heating and cooling demands.
