Thermal Energy Storage - Lab-Scale prototype

  • Blanchard, Didier (Project Participant)

Project Details


Large quantities of thermal energy – both per weight and price - can be stored reversibly in many salts upon ab-/desorption of water or ammonia. The project is to develop thermochemical heat storage (TCS) system based on NH3 ab/desorption in metal halides. We target for this lab-scale prototype a storage capacity of 1 MJ (2.5 kg NH3) based first on existing mixed metal salts (e.g. SrBaCl2), to demonstrate the system feasibility and document the actual efficiency of the different components and test the mechanical and structural properties of the system during multiple cycles.
