Workshop on Thermal Energy Storage for industry, buildings and marine applications

SINTEF will arrange a TES workshop to gather researchers and stakeholders interested in the topic. Applications and opportunities for different TES technologies will be presented and discussed, from low to high temperatures and for applications in industry, buildings and marine sectors.


Strindvegen 4, Trondheim
