Currently, there is no way to store electricity produced by renewable sources such as wind and solar power. If energy is not used instantaneously, it is lost. This research looks at the use of buildings as energy absorbers in an integrated smart electricity grid. Spare energy could be stored as heat by the Irish housing stock if there was an intelligent system to synchronise the production and distribution of this electricity.
