This project focuses on researching, developing and testing in practice a passive climate control system in a multi-faceted, experimental environment, based on the smart integration of subsystems.
In this system, a climate tower is combined with intelligent sun protection techniques, phase change materials for the required heat buffering and storage, and adaptive and predictive measurement and control technology.In this way, various functionalities are combined in multifunctional components and subsystems: integration of passive cooling / heating and ventilation, heat storage through integrated thermally active materials, regulation of sun entry through advanced controlled flexible sun protection.The energy demand is greatly reduced by heat buffering and the use of natural airflow, so that little or no equipment is needed for climate control. The project uses an integral view of circularity and embodied energy of used materials, processes and techniques. In addition, specific attention is paid to digitization and industrialization of the design and construction process in order to increase market opportunities later.
