Development and Validation of an Innovative Solar Compact Selective-Water-Sorbent-Based Heating System
Σύντομη περιγραφή

SWS-HEATING is developing an innovative seasonal thermal energy storage (STES) unit with a novel storage material and creative configuration based on a sorbent material embedded in a compact multi-modular sorption STES unit. This will allow to store and shift the harvested solar energy available abundantly during the summer to less sunny and colder winter periods, thus covering a large part of domestic heating and hot water demand all year round.
Τhe project plans to develop a compact and high-performing STES system at low cost. It will then commission a building prototype including the SWS-heating system which will be tested and validated in Germany and Sweden. The long-term goal is to contribute to the development of solar-active houses throughout the EU.
The goal for this solar heating technology, is to meet over 60% of energy demand of buildings located in Northern and Central Europe with solar energy and to reach 80% of energy demand in South Europe.
The project also includes dissemination and communication activities to ensure outreach of its results. Moreover, exploitation activities include long-term deployment path development through a technology roadmap.
