NPS joins EU research consortium

NPS Group is pleased to announce that our Humber office has entered into a research consortium led by the University of Hull.


The four year research project won the EU2020 horizon grant and has a total EU contribution of €1,156,500 to research ‘Low Energy Dew Point Cooling for Computing & Data Centres’.


The aim is to form an international and inter-sectoral network of organisations working on a joint research and innovation programme dedicated to developing the design theory, computerised tool and technology prototypes for a novel Computing Data Centres (CDC) dew point cooling system. Such a system, comprising a few critical and highly innovative components, is expected to achieve 60% to 90% of electrical energy saving and have a comparable initial price to traditional air conditioning systems.


Within the research the participants will exchange skills, be exposed to new research environments and have their career perspectives widened.


Alongside our Humber office, the consortium includes seven other EU partners and six Chinese partners:

  • University of Hull, UK 
  • Munters Europe AB, Sweden
  • Centre National De La Recherche Scientifique, France
  • Hisense Germany GmbH, Germany
  • Instytut Chemii Bioorganicznej Polskiej Akademii Nauk, Poland
  • Tsinghua University
  • China Academy of Building Research
  • Shanghai Jiao Tong University
  • The Taiyuan University of Technology
  • Guangdong University of Technology
  • Shangxi Zhonglv Environmental Protection Group Co. Ltd


Dr. Feifei Sun, NPS Energy Consultant, will lead this project on four case studies across the EU.
