Thermal Energy Storage is a collection of papers that tackles various areas of concerns in thermal energy storage. The materials in the text are primarily concerned with addressing issues regarding conservation, efficiency, and applicability of thermal energy storage. The coverage of the title includes the storage of high and low temperature thermal energy; heat transfer and thermal energy transport; and the impact of thermal energy storage on energy structures. The book will be of great interest to scientists, engineers, and technicians involved in the energy industry.Heat is transferred by direct contact between the working fluid and the thermal storage material, thereby avoiding the requirement for expensive heat exchange equipment. ... Potential applications exist in the following systems: a Compressed-air energy storage with heat-of-compression ... Such adiabatic CAES systems have high (~75 %) roundtrip storage efficiencies, and do not require fuel input.
