Seasonal sorption heat storage - Research on thermochemical materials and storage performance
Advantages of thermochemical heat storage over conventional heat storage are a higher energy density and loss-free storage of the heat after charging, since the heat is stored in chemical form. At ECN, a thermochemical heat storage is developed for seasonal heat storage applications. This paper shows results of materials testing, experiments with a lab scale reactor and first modeling results. The required output temperature of 60°C was realised.
