EinStein Project
Website: http://www.einstein-project.eu/english/homepage
Topic: Effective Integration of seasonal thermal energy storage systems in existing buildings.
Type: EU funded project
Researcher(s): Representatives Maider Epelde & Aitor Sotil
Project synopsis: The overall objective of the project is the development, evaluation and demonstration of a low energy heating system based on Seasonal Thermal Energy Storage (STES) systems in combination with Heat Pumps for space heating and domestic hot water (DHW) requirements for existing buildings to drastically reduce energy consumption in buildings.

Topic: Parametric analysis of the potential effects of climate change on the performance of a house designed to Passivhaus standards in Ireland
Type: Master thesis (MSc)
Researcher(s): Andrew Lundberg
Supervisor(s): Dr Steve Lo, University of Bath
Project synopsis: The project's aim is to evaluate a unique heating system that includes a heat driven heat pump (ClimateWell 10, CW10) powered by solar heat, with seasonal heat store and pellet boiler. The system has been built by an entrepeneur at his single family house. The system has the potential to be economically feasible in the future. The project will last 21 months, with the first 18 being used for monitoring the system.

Topic: Thermal Energy Storage
Type: PhD thesis (PhD)
Researcher(s): Shane Colclough BSc(Eng), MIE, MBA, C.Eng, MIEI
Supervisor(s): Dr Philip Griffiths, Course Director, Centre for Sustainable Technologies
Project synopsis: Scandinavian Homes Ltd. a manufacturer of Passive Homes for the Irish and international market has recently installed an underground Seasonal Thermal Energy Store at its base in Moycullen, Galway. Lars Pettersson, the MD of Scandinavian Homes has initiated the demonstration project. He hopes to showcase the potential of the underground seasonal thermal energy store for space heating and domestic hot water for the Scandinavian Homes Passive Show House. Shane Colclough of The University of Ulster is researching the area of Thermal Energy Storage and as part of a Doctoral Thesis. He is applying the use of Thermal energy storage to the Passive House standard in Ireland. He has engaged with Scandinavian Homes with the aim of objectively monitoring and reporting on the performance of the Seasonal Store installation over a heating season. Following this period he will make recommendations for future iterations of the Seasonal Store as part of his doctoral submission.
