The increase of renewable energy sources and the progressing decarbonization require a drastic capacity increase of the thermal energy storage in existing industrial plants.
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.
- Operational test of a laboratory prototype of an innovative hybrid storage system
- 40% increase in storage capacity
