Thermal Energy Storage Systems for Energy Efficient Buildings. An integrated solution for residential building energy storage by solar and geothermal resources

Deliverables

Project website

TESSe2b website represents the main source of information on all project activities and achievements. A project website will host an internal area with password-protected access for project partners, in order to share documents, intermediate results, and other information, and a public external part presenting objectives, results, communication activities, contact and partner’s details, and other appropriate information. The website will be maintained for at least one year after the end of the project and its existence will be widely spread to all relevant stakeholders. It will mainly act as a source of information while in parallel ensuring the proper communication among the diverse types of stakeholders. To assess the accessibility and the acceptability of the stakeholders, a web traffic analysis tool will be utilized as an activity and quality indicator that will track the number of visitors and analyse quantitative and qualitative metrics.

Project communication and dissemination plan

The communication and dissemination plan will present the detailed related strategies to assure the successful communication and dissemination activities during and after the project’s end. It will define practices, models, solutions, networks and knowledge. The plane will define Individual dissemination activities per TESSe2b partner. The plan also incorporates specific means of continuously measuring the impact of various communication and dissemination activities.

Conference on teaching/training activities

A conference on identification of innovation project outcomes relevant for teaching and/or training activities will be organised. A large target audience will be identified and invited to attend.

Technical & scientific publications/announcements

publications/announcements: All technical and scientific publications in journals and conferences, flyers, brochures, newsletters and posters will be archived in an organized way allowing an easy and efficient consult.

8 workshops with B2B meetings with industry

Organization of One-day Workshops in each country represented in the project (total 8 workshops) with the objective of presenting the TESS2eb new/innovative products to potential clients and users among the industry as well as potential partners, its installation, operation and maintenance, its business advantages and financing models. During the above mentioned one-day Workshops, CRES and TEISTE will organize, B2B meetings (total 8) with industry. The implementation of B2B meetings diverges from the traditional workshops, public events or capacity building seminars having the target of disseminating the project results/applications. The main objective of the B2B meetings is to raise awareness of the TESSe2b results focusing on the applicability of its energy storage solutions facilitating the wider promotion of the final TESSe2b results and products.

European market study report

The market study will be a key basis for defining a large scale replication strategy as well as defining a differentiation and market segmentation strategy for TESSe2b project. The market study will identify the need for such a solution, it will include a list of the possible stakeholders and target application, all related cost of the project will be identified and the performance of a sensitive analysis and an assessment of the market penetration of the technologies derived from the TESSe2b project will be carried out.

Report on the functional verification of the control integrated with the prototype erected during the project

This deliverable will describe the functional verification of the overall control system integrated with the TESSe2b prototype. The test set-up, measurement equipment, and the testing and verification procedures as well as the obtained results will be described.

Training material

The report on training material will joint and present in an effective organization way, all relevant material presented and used in all training courses, lectures at universities, presentations in conferences and workshops, related with the project. The objectives of the report is to demonstrate the relevant training activities developed under the project and come to be a useful source of information for professional training related to the technology developed in the project.

Gender report

The gender report will give an overview how the consortium will integrate the gender issues, namely through the participation of women in strategic roles as management, quality, research and innovation action (workshops, training, events).

Report on the business case: innovative business & financial models & standards

The report will contain optimised innovative business models and financial models, which will facilitate the diffusion of the TESSe2b new/innovative technology in addressing the resource and energy efficiency in the relevant sectors. The costs of ownership of the TESSe2b products will be presented in detail. The report include a review of the available financial instruments offered by banks and EU financial institutions and it will be identified the national support schemes and policies to promote commercially robust schemes.

Exploitation plan

The exploitation plan report will present a detailed market analysis, with identification all the potential market opportunities of the TESSe2b solution. It will describe the Intellectual Property Rights of each partner. It will be presented an important SWOT analysis towards evaluating strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threads regarding the TESSe2b solution. It will present an analysis and examination of the state of the art, target stakeholders, competition and risks. The report will also describe the different business plans for each partner and for the consortium as a whole.

Plan for all management meetings in the project

The plan will address requirements for all management meetings in the whole project (ExBo, Annual General Meetings, Work Package Leader meetings).
