Webinar - Information

30 November 2021

District heating networks that are supplied by 100% renewable energies require a high degree of flexibility. This can be enabled by heat storage on a giga scale.

The webinar showed the results from the gigaTES research project. These ranged from the preparation of the framework conditions, the development of new materials and construction concepts to the evaluation of storage efficiency with simulation models as well as the integration within district heating networks and initial economic evaluations. The conclusion was rounded off with the outlook for a first demonstration project.
