European Regional Development Fund co-financed project no.

Project title «Development and approbation of complex solutions for optimal inclusion of capillary heat exchangers in nearly zero energy building systems and reduction of primary energy consumption for heating and cooling»

The aim of the project is to develop and experimentally test complex methodology for the study of appropriate physical processes and the implementation of a full cycle of optimal design of capillary heat exchanger systems, also ensuring their efficient management with intelligent building software.

The project is implemented by the University of Latvia in cooperation with SIA «Hydrokapillar Tech».
