Work Package 5 - Advanced storage

Work Package 5 deals with the heart of the system, the thermal storage, that interacts with all heat sources and loads. For both heat pump and solar heating systems, efficient storage is key to achieving high thermal performance as both technologies have reduced efficiencies when working at unnecessarily high temperatures. Several new ideas for storage will be evaluated at the start of the project in terms of cost-benefit in comparison to state of the art systems. Phase change materials, new materials for the store and methods for reduction of heat losses amongst other ideas will be evaluated. Later on, storages will be optimised for the system concepts to be developed in the project using lab measurements and detailed simulations.
The Work Package on Advanced Storage is led by the Solar Energy Research Centre SERC at Högskolan Dalarna.
