TESSe2b – a European project funded at €4.3 M

The TESSe2b project is a European project, funded at €4.3 M under the Horizon 2020 programme, which began in October 2015 and lasts 4 years. The consortium consists of ten partners, from 8 countries. The project is coordinated by the Polytechnic Institute of Setúbal (IPS, Prof. Luis Coelho).

The main objective of the project is to design, develop and demonstrate a modular and low-cost system of thermal storage technology based on solar collectors and efficient heat pumps for heating, cooling and hot water production (DHW), thus contributing to the increase of renewables and provide flexibility for the electricity grid.

Another TESSe2b project innovation is the development of a borehole heat exchanger (BHE) that can also be used for the storage of thermal energy, thus supporting the system to increase the geothermal heat pump performance in heating or cooling mode.

Another major TESSe2b innovation is the use of a self-learning management system that will use an algorithm combining a prototype model, a user profile database, weather forecasting, and multi-variable controls.
