Reduce the carbon impact of heat production in the industrial sector, while increasing its energy independence: these are the ambitions of the FRIENDSHIP project.
This H2020 European project is aiming to develop a solution combining:
- A solar thermal collector field with a high temperature heat pump for the production of renewable heat up to 200°C,
- A combined high-density thermal storage,
- An absorption chiller for cold production down to -20°C (-40°C in the long term).
A demonstrator of this solution called SHIP200 will be installed at CEA Grenoble in 2023.
