HEAT-INSYDE selected for Horizon 2020 funding

Our HEAT-INSYDE proposal for bringing a compact, affordable and robust heat battery to the market has been selected for funding!

The EU renewable energy directive set the target to increase the energy share of renewable energy systems to 32% by 2030. Heat and electrical energy storage solutions are urgently needed to synchronise energy supply and demand in the transition to renewable energies. In line with this and under Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, the European Commission launched a call for funding projects that will contribute optimised storage solutions for thermal and electrical energy at residential, district and urban level.

Led by TNO and TU/e, the HEAT-INSYDE core team has the perfect technology to answer this need, the closed-loop heat battery technology developed during the EU Horizon 2020 project CREATE. Bringing together competent partners with sound expertise and an innovative mindset covering the entire value chain for advancing the heat battery to the market, the HEAT-INSYDE consortium of 12 partners from 5 European countries is ready to start working on this exciting project.

We’re looking forward to the project start in October 2019 and to start working together to help pave the path towards a more sustainable and green future.
