HYSS - Hybrid Solar System is a result of crossing two industries; solar energy industry & heat pump industry. Solar thermal energy makes the heat pump 50-100% more efficient. With this energy reduction, the number of PV-panels needed to reach zero energy buildings is significantly reduced. Therefore, this solution will help users with limited rooftop space and budget, reaching zero, or even surplus, energy buildings. With its software, HYSS is also available for the retrofitting of existing ground source heat pumps. Thanks to this innovative technology, energy traditionally used for heating can be diverted towards other purposes such as electric mobility while reducing CO2 emissions.
