Optimal Selection of Thermal Energy Storage Technology for Fossil-Free Steam Production in the Processing Industry
Due to increased share of fluctuating renewable energy sources in future decarbonized, electricity-driven energy systems, participating in the electricity markets yields the potential for industry to reduce its energy costs and emissions. A key enabling technology is thermal energy storage combined...
Integration of battery and thermal energy storage with PV systems: two concrete examples
Active PCM-based heat storage using biowax and a pillow-plate heat exchanger in a ZEB building
INTRODUCTION: The Zero Emission Building (ZEB) lab (www.zeblab.no) in Trondheim (Norway), owned by SINTEF and NTNU, provides a structure to develop and test innovative solutions in a living laboratory. An innovative latent heat storage (LHS) unit using biowax as phase change material (PCM) has been...
Experimental investigation of latent heat storage integrated on top of wood stoves
INTRODUCTION: Wood stoves depend on batch combustion processes yielding a high transient heat production, often reaching higher peak heat outputs than desired by the users. Latent heat storage (LHS), which relies on phase change materials (PCM), comes as a promising solution to this challenge. A...
Thermal batteries with biowax: The future of heat storage for buildings
Bruker biovoks som varmebatteri – mener dagligvarebransjen bør få øynene opp for teknologien
Active PCM-Based Thermal Energy Storage in Buildings
Relying on phase change materials (PCM), latent heat storage (LHS) yields generally more compact solutions than sensible heat storage, making them ideal as thermal batteries in commercial and residential buildings. This study reviews the main active LHS technologies for buildings that have emerged...
