FRIENDSHIP is a project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme coordinated by Commissariat à l’Énergie Atomique et aux Énergies Alternatives from Grenoble, France.
FRIENDSHIP plans to bring together research centres, industrial designers, technologies & heat suppliers into the same consortium in order to unite skills towards the boost and control of the heat supply temperature according to processes needs. It will evaluate to what extent high share of solar heat heating and cooling will allow to reduce the dependence of industrial processes on carbon energies and associated polluting emissions, and to quantify economic gains related to the use of solar energy in a context of a changing fossil fuel market and changing climatic constraints.
