As part of the ZEPHYR (ZEro-imPact innovative tecHnologY in foRest plant production) project, Exergy were tasked with the design, project management and installation of this unique off grid PV system. The PV panels have been installed on a specially designed folding roof that retracts flat to the top of the container for easy and safe transportation. The container will be transported to different countries within Europe. Generated electricity will assist the pre-cultivation of forest regeneration materials in a zero-impact and cost friendly environment. The energy generated will power the AC and DC loads within the container that includes a robotic arm that is an integral part of the plant cultivation process. Exergy travelled to Rome to manage the installation of the PV panels and the rest of the power system, working alongside the other consortium members of ZEPHYR.

The first RESSEEPE Exploitation workshop
January 8, 2014 by EON News
Exergy will participate at the first Exploitation Workshop of RESSEEPE, EU FP7 demo-targeted collaborative project. The project aims to develop and demonstrate innovative methodology and technological solutions for retrofitting public buildings resulting in substantial reductions of post-retrofit energy consumptions in the area of 50%. The first project exploitation workshop, held on January 17 in Derio, Spain, will provide information about the ongoing plans for installation of building performance monitoring systems at the three demo sites considered in the project. It will also offer an opportunity for interested partners and external stakeholders to define unique selling proposition of the project, discuss current and prospective project developments. At the event, Dr Vladimir Vukovic, Research and Business Director of Exergy and Technical project manager of RESSEEPE, will talk about the progress in reaching the project objectives.
