The goal is to develop a methodology that can be used by the industry to select the appropriate technology and identifying the potential cost-savings for a given application.
The CETES methodology will combine power-to-heat technologies, meaning electric boilers and heat pumps, with TES and by that broaden the scope towards energy storage on a wider perspective: combining thermal and electric energy systems and allowing the industry to actively participate in future fossil-free energy markets. The project will arrange a startup meeting during the HighEFF Cross-Sector meeting in October and will have a one year project period.
The project is financed by FMEII HighFF.
The HighEFF NEC Committee agreed on nominating this initiative for funding, and this was approved by the HighEFF CMT meeting in August.
