Thermal Energy Storage Technologies for Sustainability is a broad-based overview describing the state-of-the-art in latent, sensible, and thermo-chemical energy storage systems and their applications across industries. Beginning with a discussion of the efficiency and conservation advantages of balancing energy demand with production, the book goes on to describe current state-of-the art technologies. Not stopping with description, the authors also discuss design, modeling, and simulation of representative systems, and end with several case studies of systems in use. Describes how thermal energy storage helps bridge the gap between energy demand and supply, particularly for intermittent power sources like solar, wind, and tidal systems Provides tables, illustrations, and comparative case studies that show applications of TES systems across industries Includes a chapter on the rapidly developing field of viable nanotechnology-based thermal energy storage systemsBuilding services The infrastructure comprising lighting, ventilation, temperature, and water facilities for a habitable ... Chiller priority Partial storage system using the chiller to meet maximum load by functioning at the design capacity as ... District heating/cooling The process in which a centralized energy system generates and distributes energy to various locations using energy carrier for service delivery.
