Hot water buffer with advanced thermal measurements and control features

Today’s state of the art electric domestic hot water systems are stratified thermal buffers. Most of them have a single temperature sensor and a rather limited view on the energy content of the buffer. There are usually no possibilities for remote monitoring and control is typically based on simple hysteresis logic - the (only) method to control is usually to pull the plug. Other thermal buffers, e.g. for space heating, typically have rather limited monitoring possibilities. 

Research and pilot projects indicated that the (electrified) thermal energy consumption of a household, both for domestic hot water and space heating, has a high potential. A high amount of power and energy can be altered or shifted, without impacting the user’s comfort. That is, as long as there is a thermal buffer to store the heat or cold produced when renewable production is high, so it is available when the end consumer needs it.
