Inter-seasonal thermochemical energy storage for industrial buildings
The projects aims to develop an open inter-seasonal thermochemical energy storage system for use within a large industrial building. The system will store low grade heat from a transpired solar collector using a thermochemical medium stored within a suitable containment system. When required, heat will be generated from the storage system through the use of moisture laden air which will pass over the storage medium. The heat released will be distributed through the nominated building via a heating and ventilation system (HVAC). The key elements of the project will include: The selection and development of suitable thermochemical materials on a small scale, and, the scaling up of the technology to be incorporated into a nominated industrial building for monitoring purposes.
Project end date
- Development of a suitable thermochemical adsorbent material(s)
- Use of low grade renewable heat from a transpired solar collector to charge the system.
- Scaling up the technology to an actual industrial building to provide renewable heat source, when required, that satisfies the HVAC requirements of the building.
