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.
