Heat Storage Technologies: Markets, Actors, Potentials

The objective of the project on policy reinforcement concerning heat storage technologies (PREHEAT) is to provide the industry and decision makers in the EU with a reference framework to maximize the environmental, commercial and economic benefits of the main heat storage technologies for renewables and to increase the attention and funding possibilities for heat storage technologies implementation. On the long term, PREHEAT aims at a coherent European promotion program with a collective approach by the industry, R&D institutions and other market actors. This will lead to a substantially increased utilization of renewable energy, and an increase in rational use of energy.

The scope of PREHEAT is mainly heat storage technologies for small-scale renewable energy technologies in Europe. The main applications considered in PREHEAT are solar thermal systems, biomass stand-alone boilers and biomass driven heating networks.

The Heat storage technologies: markets, actors, potentials report describes and identifies the present and future national and EU market segments for heat storage technologies, and gives an indication of the most promising heat storage technologies from the market point of view, focusing on small scale RES.
