IEA ES Task 43: Storage for renewables and flexibility through standardized use of building mass

Thermal building mass activation uses building masses to condition interior spaces, but can also function as energy storage through targeted overheating/undercooling. This storage potential can be used for local and grid-connected renewable thermal and electrical energy (Power2Heat). The project develops new content on the construction, control and business models of such storages and disseminates it as guidelines, data and on the basis of best-practice objects that have been implemented.

Participants: Austria (Task Manager), Denmark, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom

BEST - Bioenergy and Sustainable Technologies GmbH is leading Subtask B in this task, which deals with the system integration and control of thermal component activation.
