MATCE: Methodology for the analysis of thermal energy storage technologies towards a circular economy [RTI2018-093849-B-C31]

[Call: Research projects of «Retos de Investigación» of the “Programa Estatal de I+D+i Orientada a los Retos de la Sociedad, del Plan Estatal de Investigación Científica y Técnica y de Innovación 2017-2020, 2018 call]

The main objective of this project was to develop and validate a methodology to evaluate and improve the sustainability of energy technologies integrating thermal energy storage in order to come closer to a circular economy and to apply this methodology with different case studies for industry and building applications.

The main obtained result of this project was to develop a methodology that ensures that the deployment of thermal energy storage technologies (TES) is carried out following the criteria of the circular economy. Different case of the use of TES was studied and the technology was validated.
