Thermochemical Energy Storage and Transport

    Research output: NRELTechnical Report


    This paper describes feasibility studies performed by SERI of thermochemical energy storage and transport (TEST). Gases studied include a large central receiver heat utility and a small industrial process heat application with distributed parabolic dish solar collectors. TEST does not appear to be generally cost-effective; however, there are special cases of cost-effectiveness. The overallrecommendation is that research on thermochemical processes should emphasize the manufacture of renewable fuels using solar energy and the search for more cost-effective TEST systems.
