TKI Project – School ventilation with cooling and low pressure filtering

VFA Solutions participates in the project School ventilation with cooling and low pressure filtering of the Top Consortium Knowledge and Innovation (TKI) Urban Energy. The goal of the project is the development and practical testing of a ventilation system suited for renovation of schools and day care centres with an 80% reduction of the energy costs for cooling and filtering. VFA Solutions participates in this project together with TNO Science & Industry and Lucam B.V.

Goal

The goal of this project is the development and practical testing of a ventilation system suited for renovation of schools and day care centres with an 80% reduction of the energy costs for cooling and filtering. The system is equipped with Smart Sensoring to report anomalies of a class A indoor environment. The to be developed cool and filter techniques are an important contribution towards the reduction of the necessary cool and ventilation energy in buildings. They will create the possibility of energy neutral or energy supplying buildings. In addition to schools and day care centres, offices will be the largest market share on the long term. The energy savings due to energy efficient cooling and low pressure filtering will be 0,25 Petra Joules per year in 2030.

Result

  • Dew point cooling in combination with heat recovery in counter flow heat exchanger;
  • Electrostatic filter module for 10,000 m³/h applicable in air handling units;
  • One air handling unit supplies air for 4-5 classrooms (~2000 m³/h per classroom)
  • Smart sensor system: automatic reporting of CO2, temperature, humidity and PM2.5 particulates;
  • Energy-efficient low pressure school ventilation system tested in an existing school.
