Cool*Alps addresses climate change adaptability and energy security of buildings in the Alpine Space. More frequent heat waves are expected to lead to a significant increase in energy demand for cooling buildings. But the split air conditioners often installed in buildings, add to the problem as they generate waste heat. The innovative technology of thermally activated buildings (TABs) can be a practical and affordable solution to the problem. TABs enable CO2-free heating and cooling with one system and make settlements more flexible and resilient to extreme heat periods.
Cool*Alps promotes their great potential by developing the skills of builders and planners and supporting decision-makers in the implementation of TABs.
