Thermal energy storage


Also found in: Acronyms, Wikipedia.

Thermal energy storage

Technologies used for storing energy in a thermal reservoir for later use. For cooling, ice is produced at night to provide daytime cooling, thereby reducing peak daytime electricity demands. For heating, solar collectors are most commonly used to gather heat, which is then stored for later use.

According to Source Energy and Environmental Impacts of Thermal Energy Storage from the California Energy Commission, by 2005 in California alone, TES could reduce carbon (C[O.sub.2]) emissions by 260,000 tons and nitrous oxide (NOx) emissions by almost 600 tons annually.
The main advantages of CSP are the potential for integration with conventional thermal power stations (even to the point of using fossil fuels as back-up) and that thermal energy storage can be much more cost-effective and viable than battery storage of electricity.
