VERY URGENT – H2020 FTI 2016: Heat Interface Unit (HIU) for central space heating and domestic hot water preparation systems

An Italian SME, based in Lombardy, is going to submit a proposal under the call H2020 – Fast Track to Innovation.

The goal of the project is the design of an indirect heat interface unit (HIU) fulfilling the needs of a modern household in a multi-dwelling complex with central heating system. The company looks for three industrial partners: one with experience in electronics and control, another in brand management advertising/promotion and a last one able to provide pilot installations for field testing.

Partners with the following profile are sought:

Partner 1

– Type: Enterprise

– Activity: Development of a dedicated electronic control equipment

– Role: Design and optimisation of the electronic equipment required to accurately control modulating valves according to output temperature. This includes/integrates servomotors, sensors and controllers with smart capabilities for remote control.

Partner 2

– Type: Enterprise

– Activity: Product-related services

– Role: Promotion of the product diffusion by means of advertising, information campaigns and training sessions. Creating an after-sale and technical assistance service.

Partner 3

– Type: Enterprise

– Activity: Providing pilot installations for field test

– Role: Making arrangements with building contractors to have the HIUs installed in pilot plants, to the aim of field-test the new product and collect relevant data.


An Italian SME located in Lombardy is developing a Heat Interface Unit (HIU) that provides on-demand heating and hot water by two integrated heat exchangers, whose instantaneous power is adjusted by valves modulated by smart electronic equipment.

In multi-dwelling residential complexes, central heating solutions are more and more encouraged, since using a number of local heat generators proved to be less cost effective and more polluting than using a single appliance of equal efficiency. Furthermore, local solutions do not allow to easily integrate different energy sources, like renewable or alternative sources. To ensure each user the necessary independence, a HIU can be installed at the entrance of each household including regulation, control and metering devices. HIUs equipped with heat exchanger are particularly interesting because they provide on-demand hot water, prepared instantaneously for each user without the need for cylinder storage.

The purpose of this proposal is to develop and put forth an optimised HIU fulfilling the needs of a modern household. Solutions adopted to optimise its operation include the possibility to exert differential pressure control over different segments of the system, the use of two heat exchangers instead of just one (indirect HIU), and the control of domestic hot water temperature and heating fluid temperature by means of modulating two-port valves. In this configuration, each valve is installed on the primary side of the relative heat exchanger and adjusts the boiler flow rate so to keep the secondary fluid flow temperature stable to the desired value. This solution allows to save pumping energy with respect to fixed-flow rate configurations and optimises the temperature difference across the primary side by keeping the return temperature as low as possible, which improves the operation of condensing boilers and is often a prerequisite by district heating companies or contractors.

The use of two-port valves for temperature control requires the development of a dedicated electronic equipment that must be capable of independently managing the services and to easily interconnect with smart systems for remote control.

System performances will be assessed by a full test campaign including field testing.

Making the product known and giving the operators information on system requirements, correct use and implications of choosing this system arrangement are of fundamental importance, too. This information process can be tackled by transparent advertising campaigns and by widespread training sessions tailored to all involved stakeholders – designer, installer, servicer and end user.

Project’s aims

  • Design of the mechanical and hydraulic equipment: development and engineering of components, with particular attention to control valves; design of the assembly
  • Development of a dedicated electronic control equipment, consisting of electronic servomotors, sensors and controllers
  • Prototype manufacturing
  • Full test campaign to assess the HIU performances and to define the product in details, including field testing
  • Supply chain definition
  • Production definition
  • Creation of technical, marketing and advertising documentation
  • Planning of training sessions targeted at technical designers, installers, servicers
  • Creation of installation, commissioning, technical assistance after-sale services
  • Definition and delivery of information sessions targeted at the end users


The company is looking for 3 industrial partners able to provide the following expertise and know-how:

1 Experience in electronics and control (HVAC), building automation and human interfaces

2 Experience in brand management, advertising, promotion, and training program development

3 Possibility to provide one or more pilot installations to field-test the new units.

Other expertise fields are already covered by other members of the consortium:

– Experience in manufacturing heating and plumbing equipment

– Experience and facilities to test, validate and characterise the new system.

– Official call Deadline: 15-03-2016 17:00:00 (Brussels local time)

Deadline for Expression of interest: 01/03/2016
