From Wikipedia:

Storage heating
Main article: Storage heater

A storage heating system takes advantage of cheaper electricity prices, sold during low demand periods such as overnight. In the United Kingdom, this is branded as Economy 7. The storage heater stores heat in clay bricks, then releases it during the day when required.
These are common in the UK, where electric heat is widespread.
