Seasonal Thermal Storage

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Thermal energy tends to be used for space conditioning and hot water. Thermal energy tends to be readily available from the sun in the summer while it is needed in the winter but it is difficult to store thermal energy because temperature differences drive heat transfer. This chapter considers the development of seasonal thermal storage, considering developments at household and community level, concluding with current research into sensible seasonal storage.
