Sustainable Places 2020
Sustainable Places (SP2020) prides itself on being an ideal platform for the dissemination of research, the conduct of workshops, EU project clustering and networking between stakeholders of all types. Renowned for showcasing results coming out of the EU Horizon 2020 Framework Programme via the participation of cutting-edge research and innovation projects, the scope of Sustainable Places is captured directly in its name. It involves designing, building and retrofitting the places we live and work in a more sustainable way.
Our workshop together with HeatInsyde, HYBUILD and inteGRIDy
Integrated Storage systems for Residential buildings
The fight against climate change has shaped the core of the EU´s latest energy legislation under the Clean energy for all Europeans package. Energy storage has become a key player in the transition towards EU´s carbon-neutral economy by synchronising the overall energy supply and demand, at residential, district and urban level.
The current mature technologies for thermal storage are mostly based on water but a new wave of innovation is set in place to increase storage density and efficiency by designing systems based on alternatives, such as thermochemical materials. This new wave of innovate energy storage systems will not only will improve energy efficiency and the integration of renewable energy sources but it will also help enhancing European energy security while tackling energy poverty and unemployment.
In this workshop, 3 Horizon 2020 EeB PPP projects will present and benchmark their research on innovative integrated storage systems for both existing and new residential buildings.
