IEA ES Task 36: Carnot Batteries

Carnot Batteries are an emerging technology for the inexpensive and site-independent storage of electric energy at medium to large scale (> 1.000 MWh). The technology transforms electricity into thermal energy, stores it in inexpensive media such as water or molten salt and transforms the thermal energy back to electricity as required. Carnot Batteries have the potential to solve the global storage problem of renewable electricity in a more economic and ecologic way than conventional batteries.

IEA ES Task 41: Economics of Energy Storage

What is the value of energy storage and how can it be quantified? How can the benefits and value of energy storage be translated into promising business models? The Task will conduct a coordinated methodological assessment of the economic viability of energy storage (electrical, thermal, and chemical) in applications relevant to the energy system. This will be used to derive preferred conditions for energy storage configurations.

IEA ES Task 43: Storage for renewables and flexibility through standardized use of building mass

Thermal building mass activation uses building masses to condition interior spaces, but can also function as energy storage through targeted overheating/undercooling. This storage potential can be used for local and grid-connected renewable thermal and electrical energy (Power2Heat). The project develops new content on the construction, control and business models of such storages and disseminates it as guidelines, data and on the basis of best-practice objects that have been implemented.

IEA ES Task 44: Power-to-Heat and Heat integrated Carnot Batteries for Zero-Carbon (industrial) heat and Power supply

The rise of renewable energy causes fluctuating energy production. The electrification of heat supply further challenges the electricity grid. Coupling electricity and heating with thermal storage helps to strengthen grid resilience and ensures stable energy supply. This project identifies and evaluates heat-integrated Carnot battery concepts to store thermal and electrical energy and supply electricity and thermal energy on demand.

IEA HEV Task 41: Electric Freight Vehicles (Working period 2021 - 2022)

So far, the transformation of freight transport remains one of the biggest challenges on the path to zero emission. The Task's main objectives are to monitor progress and review relevant aspects for a successful introduction of electric freight vehicles (EFV) into the market. Austrian pilot projects on EFV are used to exchange barriers and solution approaches in an international context, especially with regard to substitution potential, costs and energy consumption. Together with incentive systems for the market launch of EFV, this will be discussed with logistics companies, the ministry (BMK) and research institutions.
