The house for the demonstration site in Austria has been approved by the European Commission. The house is located in Kapfenberg, a town some 40 km north of Graz, the capital of Styria. The current oil-based heating system will be replaced by the innovative TESSe2b – system, using a ground sourced heat pump, solar collectors, PCM-based heat and cool storage and a smart control algorithm. So instead of some 4.000 litres of oil per year only green energy will be used to climate the house.
