GOAL

Development of high-temperature energy storage systems based on metal/metal oxides for short- and mid-term storage of volatile renewable excess energy.

Work tasks

  • Development of an appropriate oxide storage material (metals, alloys)
  • Development of a metal/metal oxide support based on ceramic materials
  • Thermochemical characterization of the metal/metal oxide
  • Characterization of the oxidation and reduction behaviour of the metal/metal oxides
  • Manufacturing of storage reservoirs and optimization with respect to microstructure, storage capacity, manufacturing technologies…
  • Characterization of the state-of-the-art anode-supported solid oxide fuel cells for cyclic SOFC-SOEC operation
  • Development of sealing materials
  • Construction of stacks
  • Battery tests and system development
  • Degradation processes during operation
  • Economic examination of such storage systems
  • Analysis of the societal acceptance of these kind of storage systems
