Horizon prize for a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Installation in a hospital using 100% Renewable Energy Sources
|Description of call |
"Horizon prize for a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Installation in a hospital using 100% Renewable Energy Sources"
inducement prize will reward a hospital that has an innovative and within its premises perfectly integrated combined heat
and power (CHP) installation. This installation has to use at least three different European renewable energy technologies,
include energy storage component(s) and be able to provide 100% of hospital's annual needs for energy consumption. In this
context any renewable energy source is allowed. |
The prize will induce innovative renewable energy solutions integrating several technologies into one energy system. Installing such kind of integrated equipment in the ecosystem of a hospital would not only ensure the security of its energy supply, but would also raise public awareness on renewable energy. Moreover, the prize aims to mobilise and enhance private and public investments for replication of similar solutions in Europe and worldwide.
