Intelligent heating and cooling for buildings

Henan Runheng  Energy Maganement Co., LTD have developed intelligent heating and cooling technology for building by recharging shallow geothermal energy in the same well. The company claims that their technology matches the amount of effluent to backwater and reaches adequate heat exchange between backwater and soil. This greatly improves the efficiency of the heat pump unit. In the full closed cycle, water remains unpolluted. Furthermore, the technology overcomes the defect of water heat pump recharging in multiple wells. It solves the problem of the heat source well blockage and declining water levels.

IoT for facility management

Yanzi and Pythagoras cooperate using IoT for facility management to optimize the usage of office space. By placing sensors they know the precise usage of all desks and meeting rooms, and once they have the full picture they can reorganise so that the use of the office space increases. Most office spaces are only utilized about 50% of the time. By measuring and optimizing this rate can be increased and thereby energy is saved for heating, cooling and lighting and in the long term less buildings will need to be constructed.

Liquid organic H₂ carriers for H₂ logistics

Liquid organic H₂ carriers for H₂ logistics

Hydrogen (H₂) is the energy vector of the future. Although it can be used in many industrial sectors, its current solutions for storage and transportation are hazardous and inefficient. Hydrogenious GmbH have developed an alternative technology for H₂ storage and transportation–liquid organic hydrogen carrier (LOHC) technology. H₂ is chemically bonded to a stable carrier liquid. Thus, H₂ loses its explosive character and can be stored and transported in the well-known and already existing oil infrastructures. Hydrogenious claims that LOHC is the key to a viable H₂ society.

Module with heat-superconducting material and PV

Solar hot water and PV power are the two main approaches to utilize solar energy directly at present. However, the energy conversion efficiency of solar water heater and PV modules still needs to be improved, and the average service life of water heater is only 3-5 years.

Ecoway Energy Technology Group developed the micro heat pipe array heat superconducting materials with international and national invention patent, based on which a new generation of thermal and PV products are developed, and its thermal conductivity is about 5000 times of the aluminum. Flat Solar Collector Utilizing Heat Superconducting Material has the advantage of high efficiency and long durability. Daily solar heat gain reaches 11.2 MJ/m2, which is 1.6 times of the national standard. It avoids the common problems of traditional flat solar collector such as solder joints cracking, high antifreeze cost, easy to rust, et al., making the service life above 25 years. The Heat and PV Combined Module uses the heat superconducting material to obtain the heat accumulated in the component quickly to reduce the temperature, increasing the amount of power generated while converting most of the heat into hot water. In summer, this technology could increase the efficiency of PV power generation in the eastern area by up to 50%. Flat Solar Collector Utilizing Heat Superconducting Material & Heat and PV Combined Module have a promising future of widely use in residential, commercial and industrial buildings in the solar thermal engineering market, as well as distributed PV power generation market.

Online B2B marketplace for fresh produce

Moving food from the farm to the family dinner table can take months of passing through intermediaries before arriving at the supermarket. Chemical are therefore used to ensure longevity, resulting in old food that is perhaps months old, chemically laden, and with reduced nutritional value. Fresh.Land digitizes the food supply chain, allowing farmers to sell directly to retailers using a platform that provides logistics, payment, legal and knowledge support integrated into one solution. Food is purchased and consumed within days instead of months, protecting food integrity and minimizing waste.
