Developing a compact rechargeable heat battery
The MERITS consortium is working on a new solution for improved use of renewable sources for heating, cooling and domestic hot water applications in individual (new & existing) dwellings in three climate zones.
The aim is to build a prototype of a fully functioning compact rechargeable heat battery that would fit in for example a cellar or underground a garden. In addition, business models and market strategies are developed to foster market take-up before 2020.

Compact Heat Storage
Research & Development
Going beyond the state of the art requires R&D on almost all parts of the system.
Building & Testing
The prototype rechargeable heat battery will be built and tested in two field-tests in different climate zones.
New solutions for compact heat storage should actually be implemented. New business models and new market strategies will be developed to this end.
The objective is to create a fully functional prototype ready for market replication. Here, the major intermediate results will be published.
The current project has received funding from the European Commission Seventh Framework Programme (FP/2007-2013) under grant agreement No ENER/FP7/295983 (MERITS).
