Proc. ASME. ES2021, ASME 2021 15th International Conference on Energy Sustainability, V001T06A003, June 16–18, 2021
Paper No: ES2021-63066
...Abstract Abstract This paper describes a terrestrial thermocline storage system comprised of inexpensive rock, gravel, and/or sand-like materials to store high-temperature heat for days to months. The present system seeks to overcome past challenges of thermocline storage (cost and performance...
