Description

Thermal Energy Storage Technologies for Sustainability is a broad-based overview describing the state-of-the-art in latent, sensible, and thermo-chemical energy storage systems and their applications across industries. Beginning with a discussion of the efficiency and conservation advantages of balancing energy demand with production, the book goes on to describe current state-of-the art technologies. Not stopping with description, the authors also discuss design, modeling, and simulation of representative systems, and end with several case studies of systems in use.

Key Features

  • Describes how thermal energy storage helps bridge the gap between energy demand and supply, particularly for intermittent power sources like solar, wind, and tidal systems
  • Provides tables, illustrations, and comparative case studies that show applications of TES systems across industries
  • Includes a chapter on the rapidly developing field of viable nanotechnology-based thermal energy storage systems

Readership

Energy storage technology vendors; energy service companies (ESCOs); commercial building owners and managers; renewable energy project developers; utilities; government agencies and policy makers; and the investor community
