The eco-efficient building in which the WT is going to be integrated, was funded by the EU using FEDER funds, within the framework of the University of Zaragoza’s 2006-2012 Infrastructure Plan, and co-financed by the Aragon Regional Government. The building is located in Rio Ebro Campus in Zaragoza. This area brings together different Centres and Institutes of the University of Zaragoza as well as other research organizations, which constitute a place of reference in the Aragon region.
The building itself is a R+D+i laboratory aiming to lay out the most advanced scientific-technological foundations worldwide in the development of Zero Emissions Constructions. It integrates techniques involving bioconstruction, energy saving, water, renewable energy and materials, thus obtaining the greatest possible efficiency with the resources available, without compromising thermal comfort.
This building houses the Renewable Energy Integration Lab which performs R+D+I activities in in the field of connection to the electric grid of renewable generation systems, storage and micro-grids, as well as developing applications to improve grid quality and electric vehicle charging.
