Increasing the energy supply security through the efficient use of zero-carbon heat sources (geothermal heat, waste heat, solar heat, biomass decomposition heat) for heating and power production

Project leader:

Imre, R. Attila

Participating researchers:

Imre, R. Attila; Groniewsky, Axel; Kustán, Réka; Györke, Gábor; Sindu Daniarta; Szabados, György; Lévai, Emese; Cséfalvay, Edit; Kovács, Viktória; Csemány, Dávid; Szücs, Botond; Mayer, Martin; Kovács, Róbert; Szűcs, Mátyás; Fehér, Anna

The following topics are investigated: utilization of low-temperature heat sources for power production; waste heat recovery from engines and other equipment; environmental protection, life cycle analysis (LCA); heat pumps, utilization of heat sources for cooling and heating; utilization of solar thermal and industrial waste heat; integration of zero-carbon sources for power production; thermal storage and related problems.
