Abstract
Considering the current state-of-the-art in Thermal Energy Storage technologies, the main motivations of this project are:

To reduce the high costs in existing storage systems,
To look for viable possibilities for thermal energy storage systems which are still undeveloped

The aim is the development of cost-effective thermal storage systems for Concentrated Solar Power, with an investment cost of less than 25€/kWh of storage capacity. One of the outcomes of this project will be to provide the Consortium with experimental and numerical tools/platforms for future designs and industrial technological support, attracting customers of the solar energy field.
