This study investigates the economic and technical feasibility of Carnot batteries in the German context. The theoretical approach that combines Carbon lock-in and Multi-level perspective theory has shown that there is a window of opportunity for niche technologies such as Carnot to disrupt the system and become institutionalised. In order to do it is necessary to find a viable marketplace. Hence, the application in the power sector was analysed recurring to a methodology that includes the utilisation of EnergyPLAN combined with Matlab. This approach allowed the simulation and optimisation of 21 different pathways.
From this analysis, it was possible to conclude that there is a promising perspective for the use of Carnot batteries in the retrofitting of existing coal-fired power plants
