Energy Storage (ECES TCP)

The ECES TCP develops and demonstrates advanced thermal and electrical energy storage technologies and encourages their use as standard engineering design options. 

Testing the efficiency gains and CO2 reductions from phase-change materials in building walls (Lleida, Spain).*


  • Distributed energy storage for renewable energy
  • Future electric energy storage demand
  • Materials research and development for improved systems (a joint activity with the SHC TCP)
  • Optimisation and automation for net zero energy buildings
  • Thermal energy storage for cost-effective energy management and CO2 mitigation
