LOW CARBON HEATING TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION FUND PROJECT

Energy Transitions is developing a high efficiency, unglazed solar energy façade technology, christened ‘Steel Zero’. Steel Zero is a low emissivity Transpired Solar Collector, which uses solar energy absorbed by the façade material to heat air, which is then drawn through perforations within the facade. Steel Zero thereby generates solar heated air flows which can be used to contribute to the heat demands of buildings. The project aims to advance the development of Steel Zero and to develop innovative systems that apply the solar thermal energy harnessed by Steel Zero in combination with heat pumps, including within heat networks.

The project is funded by the Department of Buisiness, Environment and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), who awarded it a grant of £472,077. We are working with London South Bank University and Askew Cavanna Architects, who are based in Bristol.
