Launching “Meet HEAT-INSYDE – Heat storage Q&A”

If you’ve reached this page, you probably know that HEAT-INSYDE is an EU-funded project that is developing an affordable, compact and sustainable heat storage solution (heat battery) to meet Europe’s transition to renewable energy. Renewable energy generation is weather dependent, meaning that supply does not always meet demand. Within HEAT-INSYDE we’re developing a heat battery designed to store energy for on-demand use. But, you may wonder, what even is a heat battery, how does it store energy, where can it be used, how will it be useful to you? Or, if maybe you’re already up to speed with those matters you might wonder when it will be ready to test, how can it integrate into the energy system of your house, when will you be able to get one? Or you might have many other questions to add to the list.

While we did put together an FAQ section to address some of the most popular questions, the HEAT-INSYDE consortium is also interested in starting a more engaging exchange with those who are interested in heat storage and would like to know more about HEAT-INSYDE and its heat battery. Hence, we’re delighted to announce the launch of the “Meet HEAT-INSYDE – Heat storage Q&A” series of online public events open to all audiences. Held quarterly, these one-hour sessions will see experts from the HEAT-INSYDE consortium briefly introduce a specific theme related to the heat battery technology and engage in an open Q&A with the audience.

Starting on the 29 March 2022 at 13:00 – 14:00 (CET), we invite you to join us for the first session on How does heat storage work, and why is it so cool? Bring along your questions and ask the experts!
Registration is open and free.

13:00 – 13:10 Welcome and presentation of HEAT-INSYDE
13:10 – 13:30 Panel discussion with the experts Prof. Olaf Adan (TNO), Dr. Henk Huinink, (TUE), Dr. Pim Donkers (Cellcius)
13:30 – 13:55 Q&A with the audience
13:55 – 14:00 Wrap-up and closing points

We look forward to seeing you online and, if you’d like to be kept up to date on the progress of the project and/or invited to join the next Q&A sessions, subscribe here.
