Now entering the second phase of development, the project will combine the energy storage capabilities of these innovative technologies to demonstrate their potential for decarbonising domestic heating.
Phase 1 identified that by combining these capabilities, the technologies have the potential to significantly reduce carbon emissions – by an estimated tCO2, provide greater flexibility to store renewable energy, and support the UK government in meeting the 6th Carbon Budget.
The project team will, throughout phase 2, be demonstrating the technologies in homes and laboratory environments. The aim is to prove the potential for thermal storage at large, distributed scales in domestic settings to enhance energy network resilience and reduce carbon emissions from domestic heating.
- Deploy, demonstrate, and measure the benefits of the ADSorB technologies in domestic settings for both individual dwellings and groups of dwellings (via a heat network)
- Demonstrate and measure how intelligent control can increase the benefits of the modularised thermal stores
- Increased the TRL of the ADSorB technologies to 7
- Define a clear pathway to TRL 9 and how it will be achieved
- Engage with potential markets, supply chains, installers, and occupants to the extent that the foundations are in place for market adoption
