previous experience: During our activities, we have explored the possibility to realize new clothes with an heating system dedicated to water sports and naval sector. We have involved the Foundation Istituto Superiore Mario Boella in Turin to explore the possibility to use the Peltier principle for the heating system. We did some studies about the technologies available to finalize this product with the involvement of the Foundation. The results have not been positive to apply this technology and we are now evaluating to switch to other solutions in the mid term. We are now exploring other technological option based on innovation in electronics and materials.
