Based around two primary energy storage technologies, thermochemical (TCS) and phase change material (PCM), this project will demonstrate how the technologies can be used in domestic settings to defer grid demands, reduce energy costs and optimise for low carbon energy consumption.
TCS technologies have the potential to offer inter-day, inter-week, or longer storage of thermal energy, while PCM offers high efficiency inter-day storage.
These innovative technologies will be:
- Controlled by a smart, AI powered energy hub that utilises Model Predictive Control and Data Predictive Control to optimise energy consumption
- Deployable as a whole energy system, or as component parts, being interoperable with any existing commercially available systems
- Adaptable to new build projects and retrofit settings
