A research project “Renewable Energy Hub with low carbon footprint for sustainable building heating systems” will be implemented at the Krakow University of Technology (PK) under the leadership of Prof. Paweł Ocłoń from the PK Faculty of Environmental Engineering and Energy. The National Centre for Science (NCN) has granted funding of PLN 1,582,100 for the research as part of an international cooperation between scientists from PK and the Czech Republic and Slovenia.

“The project concerns research into the concept of compact RES systems using PVT (photovoltaic-thermal) cells with solar tracking systems and low-temperature waste heat. Such systems supported by dual-source heat pumps using air and waste heat from PVT panels could find application for single-family buildings”, explains Prof Paweł Ocłoń.

Work under the project will be carried out by researchers from the Krakow University of Technology together with the Brno University of Technology (Czech Republic) and the University of Maribor and the Bistra Research Centre from Ptuj (Slovenia).
