Abstract:
Thermal Energy Storage (TES) can help industrial processes to achieve higher energy efficiency by re-using otherwise wasted heat. The LOCOSTO project aims to develop solutions for industrial TES applications in the temperature range of 100-250°C that are both technically and economically attractive. Potential applications for TES are analysed both on their technical requirements and their economic feasibility. A calculation tool is developed to assist in the techno-economic feasibility studies. Materials research was done to identify and characterize novel phase change materials (PCM) that are attractive for TES due to their high storage capacity and constant temperature level.
