Analysis and Design of innovative Systems for Low-Exergy in the Built Environment (COST 24)

Short description

Exergy is a thermodynamic concept which allows to articulate what is consumed by all working systems (e.g. man-made systems like thermo-chemical engines and heat pumps, or biological systems including the human body) when energy and/or
materials are transformed for human use. Exergy analysis can give insight into e.g. the
extent to which the quality levels of energy supply (e.g. high-temperature combustion) and demand (e.g. low-temperature heat) are matched.
