Research project

EU project MacSheep

The EU project MacSheep is coordinated by the Institut für Solartechnik SPF and deals with the development of heating systems which combine solar thermal energy with heat pump technologies. The ambitious goal is to reach a reduction of 25 % of the electric energy use of those systems in comparison to the state of the art of 2011/2012 within the four years of the project.


These research and development activities receive funding from the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Union under grant no. 282825. The project start was in January 2012.
