Thermal Energy Storage (TES) is defined as the temporary storage of thermal energy at high or low temperatures. As most of the renewable energy sources (solar, wind, …) are intermittently available, the target of TES is to improve performances of energy systems with a smoother supply and an increased reliability. The three main types of thermal energy storage use sensible heat, latent heat or thermochemical heat. For each TES mode, various types of transitions or reactions are exploited.
The webinar will focus on how the thermal analysis and calorimetric methods can be used to investigate the different TES techniques and to characterize the transitions or reactions of typically used materials (fatty acids, paraffins, organic substances, inorganic salts, adsorbents, clathrates).Please register to have access to all webinar video
