New photovoltaic system for the Ottenbach primary school
Climate change has led to an increased demand for air conditioning. Working on behalf of the city of Zurich, our EBP team examined the question of whether cooling systems on high-rise buildings are suitable for transporting unusable, cooling-related waste heat out of buildings to the ambient air. In particular, we examined whether waste heat can be transported away from urban settings. We also examined the technical, structural, and economic changes this might entail.
