During winter, the binding of the water vapor with the sorbent produces energy, releasing heat
The "Flying House" will be used to test a new solar thermal heating system as part of the Solspaces project
Researchers at the University of Stuttgart are preparing to test a solar heating system capable of long term storage as part of "Solspaces," a three-year project that kicked off in March 2012. The heating concept uses a solar thermal system in conjunction with a sorption tank for storing heat from solar collectors throughout the warmer months that can then be released when the mercury drops.
