Researchers at the MEET Battery Research Centre at Münster University have developed a new energy storage system based on dual-ion battery technology. Its long service life is promising for stationary applications. The focus of the development was on cost-effective battery systems. The key difference to lithium-ion batteries is the purpose of the electrolyte. Chemist Dr. Tobias Placke from MEET explains further that, “In the lithium cell, it serves only as a transport medium for lithium ions between both electrolytes. In the dual-ion cell, however, it is an active material.”

The Horizon 2020 funded TESSe2b project (Thermal Energy Storage Systems for Energy Efficient Buildings) will enable the optimal use of renewable energy and provide one of the most advantageous solutions for correcting the mismatch that often occurs between the supply and demand of energy in residential buildings. The target of TESSe2b is to design, develop, validate and demonstrate a modular and low cost thermal storage technology based on solar collectors and highly efficient heat pumps for heating, cooling and domestic hot water (DHW) production.

On 14 July 2017 a settlement of plus energy houses was inaugurated with a ceremonial key hand over to the building owners. All 13 houses (nine single-family houses and four double house halves) fulfil the efficiency house plus standard defined by the German Building Ministry. As such they generate more final and primary energy from renewable energy sources than they consume if balanced over a year. This includes also the household electricity use.
