Thermal Energy Storage for Sustainable Energy Technology

Solutions developed

The project Thermal Energy Storage for Sustainable Energy Technology aims at a decisive contribution towards a new generation of efficient and compact thermal energy storage systems in three sectors of energy use: buildings, industry, and mobility. Five development lines cover the different aspects and relevant topics of the R&D work.
- Development Line A: Novel seasonal solar sorption storage for buildings
- Development Line B: Thermal storage for car battery temperature conditioning
- Development Line C: Storage for efficient energy systems in railway vehicles
- Development Line D: Industrial waste heat recovery with novel thermochemical heat storage
- Development Line E: Novel medium temperature PCMs for industrial applications

Main results

The project consortium consists of key scientific institutions active in the field of heat storage technologies and leading industry partners which will provide the basis for further industrial development. The cross-technological and interdisciplinary approach of the project bundles competence and knowledge and generates cost- and timesaving synergies to lead to an effective technology development compared to separate projects.
