Project name: High temperature thermal energy storage (HT-TES)
The basic concept of the project is that cheap, non-degradable and environmentally friendly storage materials combined with known charging and discharging technology can reduce the cost and increase the efficiency of energy storage. EUDP has provided support for the project being able to run in a pilot phase for two and a half years until 2019. In the pilot phase, the energy storage facility is located at DTU Risø Campus. If the test results are positive, the project will enter a demonstration phase (from 2020 to 2024), where the project will be tested on a larger scale. It is not yet planned where the “real” full-scale warehouse will be located, but it is expected to be in Region Zealand if the market develops as expected.
The total budget for the pilot phase of the project is DKK 8.5 million.
