The knowledge exchange forums are interactive meetings during which a series of subjects are presented and discussed among the participants. These sessions will not only allow engaged stakeholders to directly exchange with each-other, but also learn about the latest project breakthroughs and create a network for crowd-sourcing solutions to challenges we will eventually face throughout the development of the project.
The basic idea is for us to meet online about once per month and discuss a given subject at a time. We start the meetings with a 15-20 minute presentation which is then followed by a discussion with the participants.
We are currently planning new meetings for 2024. Some of the subjects we will be discussing include:
- The research behind our Sorption TES (SorTES) weekly storage solutions based on thermo chemical materials (TCM)
- The research behind our Fractal Latent TES (FractLES) daily storage solutions based on phase changing materials (PCM).
- How TES contributes to smart and resilient thermal energy networks

Recordings and presentations from our past KEFs

On Tuesday December 19 at 10:00 CET, we learded about adsorption chillers. To inspire us and get the discussion started, we heard from Gabriele Pernello of Sorption Technologies who explained to us how this eco-friendly cooling solution uses non-electric adsorption chillers that are powered by waste heat from 55°C, and the role they will play in the ThumbsUp TES solutions. Presentation slides are available here.
