Czech Republic

Location: University Centre for Energy Efficient buildings, Czech Technical University in Prague
Climate zone according to Koppen-Gieger classification (Csb): Cold, no dry season, warm summer

At CVUT (UCEEB) the pilot installation will take place on its experimental south facing façade grid. From the back side there will be created a gap with controlled climatic conditions and connected directly to the laboratories behind for energy supply and monitoring.

Portugal

Location: IPN incubator, Building C at Instituto Pedro Nunes, Coimbra
Climate zone according to Koppen-Gieger classification (Csb): Temperate, dry summer, warm summer

In Portugal, the modules will be temporarily tested in real operation at Instituto Pedro Nunes in Coimbra. In their campus there is Incubator IPN Building C - an office building from the early ’90s with many glazing and concrete walls. A small part of it (including both transparent and opaque parts) will be used for the demo and there is also the ability (i.e. space and infrastructure) to install the battery storage systems and assess the energy performance.

Slovenia

Location: Elementary school A.T. Linharta in Radovljica
Climate zone according to Koppen-Gieger classification (Csb): Cold, no dry season, warm summer

In Slovenia, the pilot will be provided by construction SME GVT Štraus, which has several construction projects in public building sector in the pipeline. Possible pilot site is at elementary school A.T. Linharta in Radovljica, which lies at the juncture of the Alpine, Mediterranean (Adriatic) and inland (Pannonian) climate, and therefore has extreme temperature differences from – 38ºC to +42ºC.
