The SWS-HEATING project concept is to develop an innovative Seasonal Thermal Energy Storage (STES) unit with a novel sorbent storage material embedded in a compact multimodular sorption STES unit. This will allow to store and shift the harvested solar energy available abundantly during the summer to the less sunny and colder winter period thus covering a large fraction of heating and domestic hot water demand in buildings.
SWS-heating project has duration of 48 months and includes 9 WPs to integrate the diverse sectors, skills, and capabilities of the consortium and to achieve the project objectives.
The SWS HEATING ambitions at different levels are summarises as follows:
Reach compact solutions that can be integrated in new or existing buildings .
