The 'INTEGRATE: Integrating seasoNal Thermal storagE with multiple enerGy souRces to decArbonise Thermal Energy' project has received funding from the EPSRC Decarbonising Heating and Cooling call.
The research project proposed by Dr Daniel Friedrich, Chancellor’s Fellow at the School of Engineering at the University of Edinburgh will be working in collaboration with colleagues from the Universities of Glasgow and Strathclyde to address the challenge of decarbonising heating while, at the same time, enabling the integration of variable renewable generation and industrial waste heat.
This research, which will be starting in April 2020, has the potential to bridge the gap between heating systems and the wider energy system. The Universities of Strathclyde, Glasgow and Edinburgh are all ETP member universities and the project proposal was given strong from ETP at its application stage and will also provide in-kind financial support. ETP recognises the value of the proposed research and will bring their expertise as a broker between academia and external organisations and industry to promote and disseminate the outcomes.
