GeoBATT: Hybridization of geothermal energy and flow batteries for heating and cooling of zero-energy tertiary use buildings

Research project with reference: RTC-2017-5955-3, coordinated by the company Sacyr Industrial,  corresponding to the call 2017, within the State Program of Research, Development and Innovation Oriented Challenges of the Society (Collaboration Challenges 2017).

The objective of the GeoBATT project is the development of a new energy technology that supplies the building's air conditioning systems based on the hybridization of underground thermal energy storage (low enthalpy geothermal energy) with the storage of electrical energy by means of flow batteries, in order to obtain buildings with almost zero energy consumption, with application in both developed and developing countries, contributing to a more sustainable.
