The increase of renewable energy sources and the progressing decarbonization require a drastic capacity increase of the thermal energy storage in existing industrial plants.

 

Projectmanager HyStEPs,
AIT Austrian Institute of Technology

An innovative hybrid storage concept is being developed in HyStEPs to in-crease the storage capacity of existing steam accumulators by up to 40%.

The laboratory hybrid accumulators will be designed, built, the control and regula-tion developed and finally tested under operating conditions. Successful imple-mentation promises a high potential for increasing efficiency while at the same time ensuring cost-effective implemen-tation of the technology.

MAIN GOALS

  • Operational test of a laboratory prototype of an innovative hybrid storage system
  • 40% increase in storage capacity
  • Enabling economic energy efficiencymeasures

DURATION:
09/18 – 08/20

PROJECT VOLUME:
€ 800.000
