SHED - Solar Heat Energy Demonstrator
Work has begun on the heat storage demonstrator. Housed within the SPECIFIC SHED building, INTRESTS - the Inter-seasonal Heat Storage demonstrator is a thermal store project led by Tata Steel researchers. The store will keep the excess heat generated in the summer ready for it to be released in the winter when needed. SPECIFIC are providing the test facility with the aim of a demonstrator being developed to work towards the goal of Buildings as Power Stations.

The SHED is clad in Tata Steel’s Colorcoat Renew SC® Transpired Solar Collector (TSC), a perforated cladding that is fitted onto the building skin. The heat harvested by the TSC is drawn in through the perforated cladding by a fan and stored in the inter-seasonal heat storage demonstrator.
