Heat storage and transport tank using PCM materials
A tank filled with phase change material (PCM) that allows for the easy storage and transport of heat energy for short distances (of up to 30 km).
About 60 TWh of heat energy is lost in the form of waste heat in the industry in Poland alone each year. Due to its nature (low-parameter energy) it is not possible to effectively manage this amount of energy.
Thanks to this system, the waste heat energy could be utilised - it could be transported to the places where it will be useful. Without need of expensive investments in the traditional heating network.
Maximising of energy storage rate per volume due to the using of PCM material (up to 172 kWh/m^3). - Energy transfer (loading and unloading) at a constant temperature - useful for heating systems. - Possibility to transport the energy storage tank at short distances of up to 30 km. -
Possibility to manage waste heat energy in industry and earn money on it instead of wasting it. - Gaining new customers for heat energy in small CHP and biogas plants. - Possibility to make heat production independent from electricity production in small CHP (maximising of electricity production volume during peak demand). -
