Short- and long-term thermal energy storage in a residential setting

The energy system of the residential demonstrator in Oud-Heverlee is equipped with different types of hot-water vessels used for thermal energy storage. These storage units offer, combined with the solar collectors, the possibility to increase the production and the self-consumption of locally produced renewable energy. It is evident that mismatches between generation by solar collectors […]
