storage phase, production techniques, the method of management of the
consumption chain and the use of resources as well as in materials and devices
Energy Building: New
construction technologies, materials and components for energy saving and
production, thermal energy storage systems, advanced insulation systems,
thermal distribution systems, energy generation systems based on renewable
sources. Focus on Advanced Material of Metal Foams.
The idea behind ATRE is to realize an innovative domestic solar system in order to satisfy hot water and heating needs of a family. In order to accomplish this task, innovative components were built and tested.
SCIRE designed an eco-sustainable Residential TES (Thermal Storage System) with an innovative apparatus for storing thermal energy based paraffin waxes used as PCM (Phase Change Materials). The high conductive metal matrix is used to enhance the performance of the system.
