Summary : "Thermal energy storage (TES) systems have been extensively employed as an elegant approach to partially fulfill the enormous energy demand in industrial applications, such as mining, geothermal, oil and gas, and construction industries by deploying the available renewable energies or using alternative energy solutions. TES allows for energy to be stored in the form of heat during times of low/no demand and used later when demand rises. Energy storage efficiency depends on many design and operational factors, which are not easy to empirically quantify. Among these factors, the permeability of porous media is not well-understood and plays a fundamental role on storage efficiency. Computational modelling is a feasible approach to predict the primary parameters to design and evaluate and optimize the performance of TES systems. Hence, this study begins with a comprehensive review of fluid flow and heat transfer mechanisms in porous media. Then, numerical investigation was performed to estimate the pressure drop through the packed bed of large spherical particles with two sets of models: pore-scale and volume-averaged. The numerical models were developed, analyzed, and validated with experimental data. Further, a new Ergun/Forchheimer correlation was proposed and employed to study the impact of various design and operating parameters, such as porosity, particle size, mass flowrate, aspect ratio, properties of storage material, and inlet air temperature on the overall performance of large-scale TES systems. Two energy sources were used based on their availability in the field: seasonal ambient air and exhaust streams from a diesel generator. The fluid flow behavior inside a packed rock bed thermal energy storage system was investigated by developing a transient, 3D computational fluid dynamics and a heat transfer model that accounts for interphase energy balance for energy conservation, using a local thermal non-equilibrium approach. The heat transfer phenomenon in the rock-pile was empirically validated. The model also provides useful information for evaluating the performance of packed beds of large rocks and in caved zones. The proposed TES system has great potential to be a green solution to meet heating/cooling and ventilation demands of deep underground mines, as well as the heating demand of the remote communities in the cold climates by reducing the burning of fossil fuels and carbon emissions"--

Summary : Each year, almost 50% of the final energy consumed in Europe is used for heating or cooling for residential, tertiary or industrial purposes. The vast majority (around 80%) of this energy demand is met by the combustion of fossil fuels such as oil, gas and coal. Not only does this have a substantial impact on the environment, including in terms of greenhouse gas emissions, it also raises concerns about security of supply. Today, the social, environmental and economic costs of climate change highlight the urgency of moving towards a new and more sustainable energy scenario. In light of the Paris Agreement targets, the Montreal Protocol, the Kigali Amendment and the European Union's own climate and energy targets, the heating and cooling sector clearly has a central role to play in successfully addressing the challenge posed by climate change. The European Technology and Innovation Platform on Renewable Heating and Cooling (RHC-ETIP) was officially launched in 2010 and currently brings together more than 700 stakeholders. Its members come from industry, research and public-sector backgrounds and it represents stakeholders from the biomass, geothermal, solar thermal, heat pump, district heating and cooling, thermal storage and hybrid system sectors throughout Europe. As such, it is a unique ETIP covering all existing renewable heating and cooling technologies.

Summary : District heating and cooling (DHC) combined with renewable energy sources can help meet rising urban energy needs, improve efficiency, reduce emissions and improve local air quality. Although currently dominated by fossil fuels such as coal and gas, DHC systems can be upgraded, or new networks created, to use solid biofuel, solar and geothermal energy technologies. Depending on local conditions, renewable-based DHC brings a range of benefits, including increased energy security, improved health and reduced climate impact.To date, only a few countries have taken advantage of their renewable resource potential for DHC or created policies to promote further uptake. Sweden and Switzerland have started promoting renewable-based district heating,while Denmark - with ambitious decarbonisation policies -already uses high shares. Many cities and regions envisage a growing role for district in their energy plans; some are also looking increasingly at district cooling.As this REmap sector study from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) shows, renewables could feasibly supply more than one fifth of the energy needed for DHC worldwide. But to drive the transition, policy makers need to fully understand the costs, bene¿ts and actual potential for renewable-based DHC.

Summary : This book evaluates the potential of the combined use of district heating networks and cogeneration in the European Union (EU). It also proposes measures to remove barriers hindering their widespread implementation, formulates policies for their implementation, and evaluates their economic, energy, and environmental consequences. The book presents a preliminary assessment of the likely cost and the impact of widespread adoption of district heating networks and cogeneration carried out in three cities that represent the variety of climatic conditions in the EU. Based on this assessment, it is estimated that by undertaking the maximum economically feasible implementation across the EU, fuel savings of €95M/year would be achieved, representing energy savings of 6,400 petajoules (PJ), which is around 15% of the total final energy consumption in the EU in 2013 (46,214.5 PJ). Using simple and quick calculations and not specific software, the method used allows the evaluation of the potential benefits of retrofitting existing power plants into cogeneration plants and connecting them to nearby heating networks. In light of increasing energy costs and environmental concerns, the book is of interest to heating engineers, city planners, and policy-makers around the globe.

Summary : This book provides a manual for the technical and structural design of systems for supplying decentralised energy in residential buildings. It presents the micro-combined cooling, heating & power systems Stirling engines & renewable energy sources (mCCHP-SE-RES) systems in an accessible manner both for the public at large, and for professionals who conceive, design or commercialise such systems or their components. The high performance levels of these systems are demonstrated within the final chapter by the results of an experiment in which a house is equipped with a mCCHP-SE-RES system. The reader is also familiarized with the conceptual, technical and legal aspects of modern domestic energy systems; the components that constitute these systems; and advanced algorithms for achieving the structural and technical design of such systems. In residential buildings, satisfying demands of durable development has gradually evolved from necessity to obligation and institutionalisation. Consequently a major paradigm change has appeared in the supply of energy to residential buildings, from the centralised production of energy using fossil fuels to the decentralised production of energy using local renewable sources. Furthermore, on the energy system market, energy micro systems which use renewable energy sources are increasingly commercialised. From among these, the mCCHP-SE-RES systems are particularly striking because they offer a high performance and they enhance the relationship between humans and the environment. This book is intended for postgraduate students of electrical engineering, applied mathematicians, and researchers of modelling and control of complex systems or power system technologies.

Summary : This book highlights the significance of using sustainable energy to prevent the deterioration of our planet using heat pumps. Energy sustainability can be achieved through improved energy efficiency. In this regard, heat pumps offer an energy-efficient alternative for heating and cooling. To drive the adoption of heat pumps as a key component of sustainable buildings, the authors focus on examining sustainable practices in heat pump operations and innovative system design. In view of the growing desire to use sustainable energy to meet heating and cooling demands and improve indoor air quality, this book offers a valuable reference guide to the available options in HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning) system design. To begin with, the authors define sustainable energy and discuss the trend of “thinking green” in building design. They then discuss sustainable practices and heat pump applications in mapping out HVAC systems. In turn, they examine the use of green operations to promote sustainable practices and, in order to highlight the importance of innovative design, discuss the configuration options and precision control aspects. In closing, the authors illustrate innovative sustainable design on the basis of several energy-efficient cases. The book’s main goal is to drive the adoption of sustainable energy solutions. Heat pumps, it argues, represent the most efficient system for meeting commercial/recreational/residential heating and cooling demands. The book not only examines industrial practices in heat pump application, but also discusses advanced heat pump technologies and innovative heat pump designs.
