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. That is achieved by integrating compact Thermal Energy Storage Tanks with Phase Change Materials (PCM TES) coupled with enhanced Phase Change Materials inside the borehole heat exchangers (BHEs), and an advanced energy management smart self-learning control system.
Demonstration and on-site monitoring evaluation of small scale TESSe2b solution at a building in three pilot sites (Austria, Spain, Cyprus) conducted with the aim to evaluate the system’s integration into building space, assess the impact of TESSe2b solution in different climates and provide evidence about its overall technical and economic feasibility.
