Latent heat storage with super insulation 1.8.2016

How to store heat for weeks

Scientists are developed solar cylinders, which can store solar heat for weeks. For this purpose they combineed a patented latent heat storage material with super insulation. Compared to equally sized conventional water storages, the solar cylinders have three times the storage capacity and have only one tenth of the heat losses. ... 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. .

Central energy management system 9.1.2017

City as Storage

A central

management system in a City can make electricity producers and consumers work

together. The result is a virtual energy storage for the energy system.

Scientists developed a management system that bundles cogeneration systems, heat

pumps , night storage heaters, photovoltaic batteries and other equipment. .
