Energy districts often show large surfaces and facades where low temperature heat can be conveniently extracted and processed for the district usage itself. However, the different temperature levels required and the mismatch between energy availability and energy demand requires the development of innovative solution for heat upgrading and storage. Such thermal process needs to be coordinated with the production of other conventional renewable power sources, such as wind and photovoltaic. The work consists in developing a new compact concept for thermal energy harvesting, upgrading and storing in a single plant concept, which needs to be integrated with an energy district
