Cool*Alps – TAB goes Green Deal

Climate scenarios indicate a significant increase in heat waves and extreme weather events. Especially in the alpine regions, more and more heat days are being recorded, which leads to a significant increase in the energy demand for the cooling of buildings. At the same time, the expansion of renewable energies brings new challenges in energy supply security due to the volatility of production and increases the need for storage options.
