Heat production - SP1
The major objectives of SP1 are to identify and quantify the fuel properties of relevance for batch combustion processes of wood and their environmental performance, derive batch combustion models, model the batch combustion process and thereby support the development of new solutions, technologies and strategies with high energy efficiency and low emissions.
Heat storage - SP2
The major objectives of SP2 are to develop new solutions, technologies and strategies for increased energy efficiency and reduced transient effects through the use of different heat storage concepts, involving both the combustion unit itself and room integration possibilities.
Heat distribution - SP3
The major objectives of SP3 are to develop new solutions, technologies and strategies for increased energy efficiency and reduced transient effects through the use of different heat distribution solutions, involving both the combustion unit itself through passive and active heat distribution solutions and building integration possibilities.
Education and training - SP4
The major objective of SP4 is to strengthen the education within this field through MSc and PhD students. The objective is also to increase the competence level in the industry. The long-term goal is competence building and strengthening of the education within combustion of wood in wood stoves and fireplaces.
Technology monitoring and dissemination - SP5
The major objectives of SP5 are to monitor the latest research and technological developments and to disseminate research results.
