Heating in residential and commercial buildings is a basic human need.
It is also a major cost for families and businesses that cannot be ignored.
The vast majority of heating is produced by the combustion of fossil fuels in buildings’ boilers resulting in an extremely negative environmental impact such as greenhouse gas emissions and smoke pollution. Furthermore, we also have to deal with sky-high heating costs and high prices on imported fuels.
An essential part of Europe’s clean energy transition is the changing role of buildings from energy-consuming to actively controlling and optimizing the indoor environment while at the same time, contributing to energy system flexibility.
Towards this direction, we have developed the CALORIC SMART THERMOSTAT that is highly evaluated and funded by the European Innovation Council and the Innovation Norway Greece
