CryoHub the EU funded project to demonstrate the potential for cryogenic energy storage at refrigerated warehouses will hold a webinar to share findings and results of this work.


Talks from the team of Universities, companies and associations involved will explore the potential for use of renewable energies, how supply can be matched to demand for refrigerated warehousing in the EU, the development of control strategies and components such as heat exchanger, as well as advanced modelling of the design and operational results. 


The project also investigated policy and behavioural matters around attitudes to adopting new environmental technologies and techniques and will share how this “bigger picture” could be used to feed into EU environmental and energy policy in the future.  The webinar will also present how the demonstration unit was produced and a suitable host warehouse found.  The host site, Frigologix in Belgium will discuss how support for innovative technologies fit into their business strategy.  We will also see how the demonstrator unit was constructed by our partners Dohmeyer. 


Speakers plan to present initial running data and discuss the future application of this groundbreaking technology based on the team’s combined experience of planning, design and build. We will explore what were the main obstacles, how were they overcome and what lessons for the future potential for innovation in energy storage does this project point towards.
