The overall objective of this project is development of new strategies for improved heat production, storage and distribution from wood stoves and fireplaces through:
- Improved combustion control by increased understanding of the batch combustion process
- New heat storage solutions
- New heat distribution solutions
- Improved heat production concepts through improved combustion control (by increased understanding of the batch combustion process)
- New or improved heat storage concepts by optimum material location and choice, including phase transition and change options, and through room integration
- New or improved heat distribution concepts through optimum passive and active methods and through building integration
- Education of highly skilled candidates within this area and training of industry partners
- Monitoring of activities and state-of-the-art within this area and dissemination of knowledge
StableWood is a Knowledge-building Project (KSP) co-funded by the Research Council of Norway in the RENERGI-programme.
The budget is 17.5 MNOK, and the duration is 5 years (2011-2014 + PhD in 2015).
