The aim of their product SMART FACADE is to produce a "positive energy façade" that can meet all the HVAC needs of the building (or even produce more than needed) with RES sources. In this way, a great contribution would be made to design of the nZEB buildings or PED (positive energy district) systems. For this purpose, they are also working on heat pumps, desiccant materials, BIPV panels and low temperature TES (thermal energy storage) technologies that can be adapted to the Smart Facade system.
