There are several possibilities to integrate renewable energy production in a project: solar energy by means of thermal solar collectors or photovoltaic panels, geothermal applications, an air-to-water or air-to-air heat pump, a biofuel cogeneration plant (CHP), residual heat from industrial companies, riothermal energy, wind energy, H2 fuel cell...
VK specialises in the integration and coordination of several renewable energy systems, taking into account the latest technologies. For example, we can optimise the energy production of building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) panels in the façade and determine the best match between the different technologies in terms of energy production and consumption.
Also, we always look at the possibility of storing heat and electricity in the short, medium and long term. In addition, each technology or combination is subjected to a life cycle cost analysis in which the return on investment and the total cost of ownership are determined. In the case of large investments, one can opt to work with a third-party investment system or an energy service company (ESCO). VK offers counselling in such an ESCO collaboration.
