Latent heat storage 18.1.2017

Increasing efficiency of power plants and electric arc steelworks

How can energy efficiency in industry and thermal power

plants be increased by using thermal energy storages? Researchers are studying

the integration of thermal storage in different industrial and CHP processes.

The focus is on high temperature storages with a storage temperature above 200

°C. A highlight of the project TESIN is the development, design, build,

commissioning and operation of a latent heat storage unit in the operating CHP

plant in Wellesweiler, Saarland of STEAG New Energies. ... more

Smart Grid 13.7.2016

Household appliances store heat

When refrigerators, washing machines or dishwashers store heat temporarily, they require less energy and can transfer their power consumption partly in low-load periods. A manufacturer of household appliances develops concepts for such products in cooperation with project partners from industry and research. The focus is on latent heat storages. ... more

Increasing the energy density of thermal storages

Scientists optimise materials and components for soprtion-based thermal energy storages of high energy density. Sorption reservoirs for buildings currently achieve an energy density of about 130 kWh / m³. In the project MAKSORE the researchers want to achieve an effective usable volumetric energy density of at least 180 kWh / m³. ... more

Heat storage system in a mine 4.7.2017

Storing heat in mines

What happens to mines that are no longer in use? Could they be used to store heat? Researchers at the International Geothermal Centre are hoping to find out whether mines could be put to this use and are conducting tests in the former Prosper-Haniel hard-coal mine in the Ruhr region to investigate whether it is suitable for heat storage. .

Performance Potential 1.4.2016

Forecasting the potential of caverns

What potential is there for energy storage in the salt structures of Northern Germany? This question is being addressed by researchers in the InSpEE project. They are investigated the planning bases and selection criteria for constructing salt cavern storage facilities. The researchers are also investigated how much compressed air and hydrogen can be stored in these. ... more
