Four students from the Universitat Politècnica de València will join the Spanish delegation at the COP28 of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. Their project, called Xaloc, is a passive climate control system that uses solar energy and reduces energy consumption in homes.
The team comes from different areas, such as engineering and architecture, under the supervision of Professor Tomás Gómez Navarro. Xaloc regulates the temperature, filters the air and can be installed on facades and roofs for the energy rehabilitation of homes.
This project is not only sustainable and energy efficient, but also focuses on housing affected by climate change and promotes green and affordable construction. It builds on the team’s previous success in the Azalea UPV project and represents the university’s first institutional submission to MITECO’s Climate Generation COP28 call.
