Description of Thermal Storage

Thermal storage technologies play a very important role in achieving the European targets for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency. This is because thermal energy storage enables a higher portion of renewables to be supplied and because the storage technologies also create better efficiencies, by balancing the availability and the demand, for a range of energy conversion technologies.

The final impact of thermal storage is very high, as 49 % of all the primary energy consumption in Europe is for heating purposes. If a technology has impact in this sector, it will automatically have impact on the energy supply as a whole.
