How HEART benefits you

Funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 program, the HEART project is aimed
at making existing buildings “smarter”, through the application of an innovative toolkit. Such a toolkit is able to reduce energy consumption, with overall savings on heating, summer air conditioning and domestic hot water production variable between 60% and 90%, and to significantly improve comfort for the inhabitants who will be able to manage their consumption directly.

The HEART project is developing and testing several components that promise to facilitate renovation by using: a multifunctional prefabricated facade system, universal photovoltaic tiles, a high-efficiency water storage tank, direct current smart fan coils and heat pumps, a multi-input/multi-output controller and a cloud-based platform to support decision making and energy management phases.
