Mission & Vision

ThumbsUp promotes the role of thermal energy storage (TES) as a key enabling technology to optimize thermal comfort and energy efficiency in buildings. It facilitates the integration of renewable energy sources and enables power-to-heat sector coupling.

We aim to overcome the limitations of existing building-integrated technologies demonstrating TES at daily and weekly level solutions to:

  • be easily integrate in the different types of EU buildings.
  • increase their energy efficiency.
  • exploit PtH approaches to make EU buildings as grid flexibility actors.

During the project, PCM and TCM innovative solutions (FractLES and sorTES) will be developed from the design to the implementation stage, with the aim of:

  • guaranteeing TES integration in different building area.
  • targeting high energy density storages with a competitive costs.
