Current status of Thermal Energy Storage (heat and coldness) via demonstration and presentations by international researchers and suppliers.

Topics in this 5th (2019) edition:
- Thermal (heat and cold) storage in industrial processes
- Thermal storage in P2H2P (Power to Heat to Power)
- Increase flexibility of your energy system by adding thermal storage

This symposium mainly acts as a dissemination activity at the end of the CORNET project Shortstore (Short term heat or cold storage in industry), executed Jan 2017-June 2019 (

Beside, project outline and first deliverables of the H2020 CHESTER project (2018-04-01 to 2022-03-31) will be presented. CHESTER (Compressed Heat Energy Storage for Energy from Renewable Sources) is a P2H2P concept (

Finally, adding thermal energy storage as a way to increase flexibility of energy systems for industrial consumers will be introduced as it will be the subject of a new CORNET project proposal.

Scheduled are: workshop (demonstration of TES-setup and integration software), conference dinner, fair, practical oriented presentations
