REECH
A NEW Design Concept for Solar Generation of Renewable Energy for Electricity, Cooling & Heating of Buildings and Urban Spaces

Project Requested Funding: 2,428,377 Euro

Program Type: STREP - 6th Framework of the European Community

Status: Coordinator

Submitted: 08.12.2004



Project Description:

Numerous projects worldwide have focused on the use of captured solar energy for use as a replacement for combustible energy generated sources. Other projects have focused on the use of Photovoltaic (PV) solar cells as electric power generators.

In this project, we propose a novel hybrid system that combines PV, cooling and heating technologies generated from green solar energy, all in a single collector. These technologies will be integrated and implemented in “green” buildings and urban spaces. We will directly generate electricity by PV cells, cool the building using green non-CFC air-conditioning technologies and heat from natural solar heat. All technologies used are green and renewable energy sources. In addition, the best local materials and energy sources will be used and adapted to local topology, climatic conditions, culture and local know-how based on traditional experience.
