How ice energy storage and rooftop solar panels contribute to the energy transition

Ice energy storage systems make it possible to store and use renewable energies most efficiently. When used in combination with the power roof — a photovoltaic system combined with a solar air absorber — two renewable energy sources are established and the building’s independence is increased. The intelligent combination of all components provides energy designers and planners with a tool by which they can best meet the heating and cooling requirements in existing and new buildings almost free from carbon dioxide This session will present a number of specific examples to illustrate how such systems work.
