Project Details


The project is the last two years of the Danish participation in the IEA Task 32 project "Advanced storage concepts for solar and low energy buildings".

The Danish participation will be focused on Subtask C: Storage concepts based on phase change materials and subtask D: Storage concepts based on advanced water tanks and special devices.

In subtask C a laboratory test heat of fusion storage uitilizing a stable super cooling of the heat storage material will be tested in the Department's heat storage test facility. Based on the investigations and on cost estimates the potential for heat of fusion stiorages for solar heating systems with a solar fraction of 100% for low energy buildings will be evaluated.

In subtask D experiments are carried out with the aim to elucidate the durability of a new developed fabric inlet stratifier.
