Abstract

Energy storages have been seen as a key component for the further implementation of distributed energy in the EU and other countries. Most of the problems in power quality, distribution reliability and peak power management can be solved with energy storages. In spite of a keen development of different kind of energy storages during latest ten years it is still a need of smart, cost effective and efficient thermal and electrical storages. In the research project "SES - Smart Energy Storages" it has been concentrated on the research and development of thermal energy storage systems and supercapacitors. The two-year project included study and modification of phase change materials (PCM) and materials for supercapacitors, development, simulation, building and testing of cold storage base module, definition of intelligent modular cooling storage system, study and simulation of PCM materials as a part of building elements of single family houses, and building and testing of supercapacitors. For simulation it was also defined new modules on VTT House simulation platform. The project included international co-operation in IEA ECES executive committee, in WG 4 (Generation and Storage) of European Technology Platform Smart Grids and a researcher exchange with the University of California, Berkeley.
