Thermal energy storage

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.

GROUND Lynette " Starting at the Whitley incinerator, four miles of underground piping will run alongside London Road, past the railway bridge, then under the very middle of the length of the dual carriageway, passing under the ring road roundabout and dividing in two.Coun One section will continue north, under the ring road to a 65ft tall thermal store building before running under the "elephant" to the sports centre and the cathedral.
The solar thermal panels produce hot water and store it in a unique thermal store. It produces high pressure hot water anywhere in the house (even if two taps are on at the same time)...and it can push a minimum of 40 degrees of hot water into your central heating system therefore pre-heating it and saving your boiler a whole lot of effort and you a whole lot of money...
