Thermal Energy Storage Jobs
Thermal energy storage can refer to a number of technologies that store energy in a thermal reservoir for later reuse. They can be employed to balance energy demand between day time and night time. The thermal reservoir may be maintained at a temperature above or below that of the ambient environment.
Thermal energy storage technologies store heat, usually from active solar collectors, in an insulated repository for later use in space heating, domestic or process hot water, or to generate electricity. Most practical active solar heating systems have storage for a few hours to a day's worth of heat collected. There are also a small but growing number of seasonal thermal stores, used to store summer heat for use during winter.
Molten salt has been proposed as a means to retain a high temperature thermal store for later use in electricity generation.
