In collaboration with Kuijpers, Mollier is organizing an excursion to Amsterdam on the 7th of December. We will visit the Hermitage and the Hortus, two buildings that are connected by a thermal storage system. The Hermitage was renovated by Kuijpers in 2009. The building needed more cooling than heating, so the excess heat is deployed in the Hortus, a botanical garden that needs a lot of heat to maintain the subtropical climate. Because of the 400 meter distance between these two buildings, this is a very interesting project. The control system is extraordinary as well, because the two climates are so different from each other but they are both controlled by the same system.
