SME instrument Grant for Novel Modular Platform for Energy Savings

17-08-16

Innovayt has helped LS Control A/S to acquire funding from the Horizon 2020-SME Instrument to develop the SmartCOMBI project. The project aims at energy savings in residential buildings using a novel and versatile modular control platform with the cutting edge technologies to control units for water heating, climate control and ventilation.

To improve energy efficiency, modern “zero-energy” homes are highly insulated. As a consequence homes can no longer ventilate resulting in poor indoor air quality. Thus, the use of efficient ventilation is becoming increasingly important. But ventilation causes significant heat loss, reducing the energy-efficiency of the building.

The SmartCOMBI project will optimize and demonstrate a novel and cost-effective control platform, resulting in cost savings and benefits for end-users (lower running and installation costs, optimized comfort and healthier environment; better control of expenses – web user interface) and manufacturers (faster route to market and lower customization cost; certification and high energy labels; gain competitive advantage by offering high efficient and cutting edge technology, otherwise impossible due to lack of know-how or financial capacity).

Per Nielsen says “The people at Innovayt have helped us to navigate in the Horizon 2020 system and in a professional way helped to pinpoint the essence in our idea. Without their help I’m not sure, that we would have been able to reach to this point, and we have decided to keep up the good corporation with Innovayt for the next phase.
