Research to be undertaken by NPL to provide a summary as to the energy required to heat varying volumes of water by varying degrees & identify suitable technologies to achieve this vision.
The project will be led by National Physics Laboratory (NPL). They have been chosen for their expertise in thermal development, temperature measurements & control.

Key Objectives & Deliverables:
NPL will provide a summary as to the energy required to heat varying volumes of water by varying degrees.
NPL will identify suitable technologies that could achieve this vision, including but not limited to: chemical heating technologies, phase-change materials, and electrical storage e.g. batteries. Consideration will be given to other parameters, including how much of the heating material (weight & size) would be needed to cause specific temperature rises (for varying quantities of water), costs, availability, and toxicity.
A report will be prepared which summaries the various technologies and provides some examples of how they might be used for this application, with quantitative examples
