SunPeople project builds energy simulation platform – using the Polysun API

The Interreg FCE SunPeople project aims to increase the development of a decarbonised heat energy service in the residential and commercial sectors. The project’s objective is to demonstrate and test on 15 sites, in Plymouth and Lorient, a cost-competitive, sustainable heat energy service based on heat pump and solar technologies. This service will enable to reduce carbon emissions on these sites an estimated 62.8 tons of carbon over a one-year contracting period corresponding to the project.

The service will rely upon a building energy simulation platform to scale up the zero-emission heating industry. The simulation of building energy schemes will be carried out using the Polysun simulation by Vela Solaris in the cloud (Polysun API).

The SunPeople project including the reference simulation platform approach relying upon Polysun software was introduced by Vela Solaris and ALOEN at this year’s conference of the European Heat Pump Association (EHPA) on Digitalization in the H&C industry, on March 9 2021.
