This webinar served as an introduction to the ThumbsUp project, aimed at addressing crucial challenges and outlining the solutions envisioned by the consortium for the four-year journey ahead.

The webinar shed light on the significance of thermal energy storage (TES) in advancing the integration of renewable energy sources (RES) for a more sustainable future. It highlighted the need for progress, especially at the building level, where current TES technologies are costly, environmentally taxing, and challenging to integrate into existing infrastructure or building energy management systems (BEMS).
