Main objective

The overall objective of this project was 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
