The International Solar Energy Society is hosting the next webinar in the IEA SHC Solar Academy's 2019 webinar series on Task 58 - Material and Component Development for Thermal Energy Storage. The IEA SHC Task 58 focuses on advanced materials for latent and chemical thermal energy storage, Phase Change (PCM) and Thermo Chemical (TCM) materials. The task deals with these materials on three different scales: material properties, material performance within the storage system and storage system implementation. Find more detailed information on Task 58 here.

Three experts will speak during the 1.5 hours webinar and a recording will be available online afterwards:

  • Wim van Helden: General introduction to the goal and work in the T58/A33 on Materials and Component Development for Thermal Energy Storage
  • Christoph Rathgeber: Material development for low temperature latent heat storage
  • Benjamin Fumey: Component development for a liquid sorption TES system

The webinar will be moderated by Bärbel Epp, founder and managing director of the German consultancy solrico for solar market research & international communication.
