Energy self-sufficiency: Solar thermal energy at CEM Bernat Picornell swimming pools (L’autosuficiència Energètica: L’energia solar tèrmica)

Do you know how the water is heated for the Picornell swimming pools and showers?

A solar thermal installation is integrated into the car park canopies and provides a significant portion of the heat (about 40% ) needed to heat the pools and showers. At this event you will see how this system works and how it benefits the municipal facility.

Visit the solar thermal installation at the Picornell swimming pools to find out how it was constructed, how it works and how much energy it saves. Co-organised by the Barcelona Energy Agency and ‘La Fàbrica del Sol’. With the support of the Barcelona Sports Institute.
