The objectives of this task are to select promising non-aquifer thermal
energy storage concepts for seasonal applications and to perform further
research that can lead to their use.
While the current thrust of the STES Program is in aquifer storage, this
task will assess other storage systems such as large pond storage, earth
storage, chemical storage, ice storage and other more advanced concepts. These
systems, in combination with aquifer storage as a hybrid system, may ultimately
prove to be most economical.
The general approach used to accomplish the task objective is as follows:
. Survey proposed non-aquifer STES systems to evaluate the following:
- operating characteristics
- possible applications
- potential thermal effectiveness
- potential cost effectiveness.
. Select promising concepts for more detailed evaluation of potential
energy savings and thermal and cost effectiveness.
. If warranted, develop a program to fully evaluate particularly promising
. Establish and maintain a library of information on non-aquifer concepts.
Internal Activities - FY-1980
Internal activities during FY-1980 included: establishing and maintain-
ing a library and performing a preliminary evaluation of concepts.
