SCCER Heat and Electricity Storage
The assessment of future development scenario in terms of energy storage systems as part of the energy network (power/heat generation, distributionand consumption) and feeding this know-how into fundamental and applied research. A comprehensive sustainability assessment with a focus on cost and environmental indicators. Competencies on how to improve the flexibility between power, heat and fuel in the future are essential for Switzerland. Therefore, we run proactivelyideation workshops with members throughout the SCCER to generate a new storage concepts by bringing together different storage technologies.The goal of "Storages for Flexibility of Power and Heat" is to engineer an electro-thermal energy conversion unit based on the ABB "ETES" process.The unit allows converting electricity into heat and cold and vice versa via a combination of heat pump and right turning cycle process, here a strong link to the activities in the area of thermal energy storage exists.Further, the interaction with the SCCERs in Efficiency, Mobility and Grids to exchange competencies between those SCCERs and to avoid duplicationand benefit from synergetic effects.
