  11. 11. Things to do next • DSM – Optimise an advanced compact thermal store (phase change materials), test with the heat pump and integrate into the test houses • Auto-Producer – Integrate new 50kWh module and assess ice bank efficiency • CAES – Drilling under way, structural engineering of cavern design => cavern size, turbine/compressor sizes, storage capacity and system selection. • PLEXOS – Scenarios agreed with steering committee, enactment and iteration depending on above results => potential market volumes and values
