Summary This book 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. The authors also discuss design, modeling, and simulation of representative systems, and end with several case studies of systems in use. It 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. It also provides tables, illustrations, and comparative case studies that show applications of TES systems across industries, and includes a chapter on the rapidly developing field of viable nanotechnology-based thermal energy storage systems. -- Edited summary from book.
