Thermal energy systems


  • The development of compact heat exchangers, evaporators, and condensers
  • Efficiency increases for refrigeration systems and CHP
  • Thermal management of battery packs, vehicles, and buildings
  • Flexibilization of chillers and CHP plants
  • Integration of storage systems into thermal energy systems (ice storage systems, latent thermal storage systems, sensitive long-term thermal storage systems)
  • Energy management systems
