ABOUT THE PROJECT
Compared to conventional air conditioning systems, the eco2jet HVAC system is targeting two main goals:
- increase in energy efficiency by at least 30% in real rail transport including a innovative heat pump function,
- reduce greenhouse gas CO2 from energy production by 30%
The project results can be transferred to non-rail vehicles such as trucks, cars, agriculture machines or airplanes. Which have similar power requirements like eco2jet. So eco2jet will have a sustainable effect going far beyond the primary context of this project.
The industry-driven consortium of eco2jet includes relevant, internationally active partners that cover the full value chain for :
- the development,
- integration and demonstration / operation of the HVAC system,
- in a real train.
