dc.description.abstract The article is focused on the research of the usage of modern accumulation technology. The proposed system is able to improve the thermal comfort of building interiors. That text depicts the technology, which uses a photovoltaics and other renewable energy sources for active heating and cooling. The bases of the presented technology are the phase change material and thermal energy storages. So, it passively improves the thermal capacity of the constructions of the buildings. Moreover, there is a possibility to use it for active heating and cooling. The technology contains thermoelectric assemblies, so, there is a very interesting possibility to store thermal energy with use of renewable energy sources (such as photovoltaic system) and thermoelectric coolers side by side. In the manuscript, there are shown measurements and results of the active operating modes of proposed technology. It was found the technology is able to work in active heating and cooling modes. It works quite well in active heating mode. On the other hand, thermoelectric cooling mode had a problem with overheating. In the end, the problem was solved and the cooling mode works. The measurements and results are described in the text. © 2018 by the authors. en
