ERANet LAC Joint Call 2015-2016: R-Y-D institutions and companies experienced in solar thermal energy -Y- energy storage technologies
Summary:
A Spanish university is preparing a proposal to ERANet LAC Joint Call 2015-2016 - Topic #06: "Solar thermal energy - Energy storage technologies". The project aims at demonstrating in place the cost savings and environmental benefits resulting from thermal energy storage using Phase Change Materials integrated in underfloor heating systems using solar-heated water. R-Y-D institutions and companies from Finland, Chile and Peru experienced in this field are sought to complete the consortium.
Description:
PROJECT SUMMARY
The aim of the project is the demonstration in place of the cost savings and environmental benefits resulting from thermal energy storage using Phase Change Materials (PCM) integrated in underfloor heating systems using solar-heated water. The proposed technology combines sensible heat storage (in floor materials with high thermal inertia) and latent heat (in PCM). The project specific objectives include: (i) search of the best way to integrate PCM with the heat pipes and the floor materials; (ii) design and manufacturing of the new modules of underfloor heating with PCM; (iii) modelling and characterization of the thermal behaviour of the new system; (iv) testing of two full-scale prototypes (in Chile and Peru); and (v) studies of the potential for replication of the new system, the economic benefit and the commercialization strategy, both in Chile and Peru.
COMPETENCES OFFERED
The Spanish partner (SPA) would carry out the following tasks:
1. Coordination of the project
2. Definition of the system concept and setup
3. Specifications of system, equipment and ICT
4. Thermal model of the new system
5. Mechanical engineering of the floor modules
6. Characterization of prototypes of case studies #1 -Y- #2
7. Technical evaluation of performance -Y- energy savings
8. IPR Handling and Innovation Management
COMPETENCES LOOKED FOR
The Spanish university is looking for one partner from Finland (FIN), one from Chile (CHL) and one from Peru (PER), to carry out the following respective tasks:
FIN (a SME is preferred, but not compulsory):
1. Definition of setup and tests for case studies #1 -Y- #2
2. Control system development
3. Design of the overall system of case studies #1 -Y- #2
4. Manufacturing of prototypes for case studies #1 -Y- #2
5. Data collection, preparation, analysis and reconciliation
6. Conclusions on economic impact and marketability
7. Plan for exploitation of the projects results
CHL (a University, Research Centre or SME):
1. On-site installation of the prototype of case study #1
2. Tests of the prototype of case study #1
3. Study of potential replication -Y- take-up in Chile
4. Coordination of the Communication -Y- Dissemination activities
PER (a University, Research Centre or SME):
1. On-site installation of the prototype of case study #2
2. Tests of the prototype of case study #2
3. Study of potential replication -Y- take-up in Peru


Some help from FIN to CHL and PER would be necessary for solving the potential problems that may arise during the tests.
Technical support for architectural issues is planned to be subcontracted by CHL and PER to an architectural firm, with a cost allocation of 15% of the respective budgets of CHL and PER.

Topic: Solar thermal energy - Energy storage technologies
Funding rate: 100%
Call deadline: 10th March 2016.
Deadline for expressions of interest: 20th February 2016.
Project duration: 36 months.
Estimated budget: 839.000 -Y-euro; (maximum).
Advantages and Innovations:
The expected impacts of the project, for both regions (Europe and Latin America), are:
- Counting on new technologies for storing solar energy
- Generating potential for a wider use of them.
- Lowering its costs.
- Increasing the use of solar energy in all sectors.

Proposal under development
IPR Status:
Secret Know-how,Design Rights
Comments Regarding IPR Status:
All participants of the consortium will sign a Consortium Agreement (CA), to clarify the potential Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) matters (such as licensing in, licensing out, patents and exploitation strategy). The CA will be sent to the call secretariat before 31st January 2017. The CA will be based on the official templates (http://www.desca-2020.eu/) and modified according to the specific needs of the consortium.

Partner sought

Partner Sought:
The proposer (Spanish University) seeks partners that can add value to the proposal. The ideal partners are companies not too small or R-Y-D institutions, but the proposer is open to any suggestion. The project coordinator role would be played by the Spanish University. The consortium is expected to be integrated by 4 partners in total. The following partners are being sought to complete the consortium: +SME (from FIN): To design the control system and manufacture the system prototypes. This company should be also able to market the resulting system. + R-Y-D institution or SME (from CHL): To study the potential replication and take-up in Chile and to test the prototype of the system in a pilot facility in Chile. + R-Y-D institution or SME (from PER): To study the potential replication and take-up in Chile and to test the prototype of the system in a pilot facility in Peru.
