Design of a trigeneration system for zero energy building

SOLEM designed a solar thermal system that produces electricity, air conditioning and hot water for a university building of UTS in Sydney, Australia. It utilises an Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) for electricity production, an absorption chiller for chilled water production and from the condenser of both these units it generates hot water for the building, providing a 0% fossil fuel energy system. The system was commissioned in 2014.
