In the last years new aspects within Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning have been established. At the moment the R&D work focuses on compression and absorption heat pumping systems as well as on environmentally more friendly mobile air-conditioning systems, in close cooperation with the competence centre “The Virtual Vehicle”.
Compression & absorption heat pumping systems
IEA Heat Pump Programme
Solar assisted air conditioning and refrigeration
Mobile air conditioning & supplementary heating, alternative refrigerants and system optimisation in cooperation with the competence centre “Virtual Vehicle (ViF)"
