New markets technological positioning for ultra-high temperature latent heat energy storage

Project description

Advanced materials and devices for thermal energy storage

The objective of the AMADEUS FET OPEN project was to discover new materials and devices permitting heat thermal energy storage at ultra-high temperatures of up to 2 000 °C. The EU-funded NATHALIE project will build on that project’s findings to identify possible new application areas, restrictions and requests as well as potential market dimensions and positioning for the AMADEUS technology. The results will have a direct impact on the design of new prototypes eventually directed to manufacturing in future R&D projects. The project will identify two main markets for the technology. The first is commercial and institutional buildings. The second is industrial process heat and power. The project will also estimate technology advantages and weaknesses.


NATHALIE project follows AMADEUS FET OPEN project which innovates in next generation materials and devices for latent heat thermal energy storage at ultra-high temperatures of up to 2000℃. NATHALIE will analyse possible new application sectors, their constraints and demands and potential market size and positioning. These findings will have a direct impact on designing next prototypes, eventually manufactured in subsequent R&D projects. Thus, NATHALIE findings will have valuable impact on the progressing velocity towards higher TRL. NATHALIE focuses on two possible markets for the AMADEUS technology: Commercial and institutional buildings and industrial process heat and power. It aslo plans to assess technology strengths and weaknesses and position into future and emerging energy value chains. The micro and macro external environmental analysis, consisting on PESTEL analysis, Porter 5 forces analysis and SWOT analysis will allow to better position developing technology towards future stakeholder expectations and will therefore allow defining technology specifications parameters to be adapted on each market segment. NATHALIE consortium involves UPM, former AMADEUS project coordinator and Ayming, specialist in market analysis.
