The growing importance of renewable energy is increasing demand in advanced energy infrastructure. With this in mind, the EU-funded REGEN-BY-2 project aims to develop a novel lab-scale prototype of a highly efficient, patented thermodynamic cycle and related plant for the conversion of thermal sources in energy vectors. The prototype, using two-phase flow compressors and expanders, will be able to convert any type of renewable thermal source (e.g. solar, aerothermal, geothermal and hydrothermal) from low to high temperature, including additional thermal sources such as waste heat. The project will promote demand for and increased use of renewable thermal sources.
