Short description: Costs have pushed floor heating from water-based to electrical. However sustainability and energy regulations are restricting the temperature to non-cold rather than warm. This is an annoyance with customers and a sustainable solution with satisfactory temperature is desirable.
Market potential: Direct heating. Better insulation/transfer of heat. No known solutions on the market today. The market for floor heating in northern Europe is above €250M/year.
Timing: No timing issue.
Desired result: Any solution to achieve floor heating with acceptable temperature still in compliance with energy and cost requirements.
Information on challenge owner: Micro SME (< 10 staff). Market presence of challenge owner: Active in one country. Keywords: Material science; Energy engineering; Construction engineering; Sustainability; House development
