This paper presents the current status of the work in Task 32 (Advance Storage Concepts for Solar and Low Energy Buildings) of the International Energy Agency’s Solar Heating and Cooling Programme (IEA-SHC). A methodology for inter-comparison has been established and boundary conditions and reference systems for this have been defined. The current status of the projects range from recently concluded feasibility studies for chemical heat storage, to prototyping, lab testing, modelling and system simulation for advanced water stores, with and without PCM content, as well as for stores based on the sorption principle. Promising new components and solutions for more classical water tanks are also described in order to define market references.
