Heat Pumps with Thermal Storage

Read the HPT Magazine no2/2021 here >

The second issue of HPT Magazine 2021 focuses on Heat Pumps with Thermal Storage.

In this issue, we also address the important topic about IEA special report called Net Zero by 2050 – A Roadmap for the Global Energy Sector. The report shows that heat pumps and efficient cooling technologies have an important role in reaching the goal.

The topical articles of this issue are all addressing the integration of thermal energy storage in heat pumping and cooling systems. Two different thermal energy storages are covered, and they are both important for the energy system of the future. Storage in the form of borehole systems and thermal storage integrated as a part of the heating/cooling system of a building. The former solution provides seasonal storage of energy, and the latter solution provides short-term energy flexibility to the electricity grid.

HPT News: Release of IEA’s Net-Zero by 2050 Roadmap for the global energy sector
The International Energy Agency has released a special report showing the pathway towards net-zero emissions by 2050. It is clear that the pledges made today by governments across the globe are not nearly enough to limit the average temperature increase to 1.5°C. The roadmap identifies more than 400 milestones to follow the path towards net-zero emissions with affordable and just energy access.

Topical Article: Heat Pump System Improved High-Temperature
Borehole Thermal Energy Storage Efficiency
A cooling tower to get rid of excess heat and bought energy for space heating. That is the reality in many factory buildings today. At the Xylem facility in Emmaboda, Sweden, a solution to this was sought for. A high-temperature borehole thermal energy storage was installed in 2010, with the idea to store large quantities of waste heat (or cold) on a seasonal basis in the geological environment.

Topical Article: Heat Pumps and Thermal Storage: Canadian Perspectives
The increased use of heat pumps might be a challenge for the electricity grid, especially when the heat pumps operate during peak hours when also other appliances are mostly used. This article explores how this can be solved with a more flexible link between the building and the electricity grid, through a system combining heat pump and storage, in a Canadian context.

Topical Article: The State of Art of Heat-Pump integrated Thermal Energy Storage for Demand Response
In the US, as much as 75% of the electricity is used in buildings. And of this, almost half is used for heating, ventilation and air conditioning. Even worse, buildings contribute heavily to the electricity grid stress by using as much as 78% of the morning peak hours electricity.

Topical Article: Simulations of Grid-Responsive HVAC Cooling Measures via Ice/PCM storage
Electricity is commonly used to cool buildings. And cooling of residential houses also occurs when the overall electricity demand is high. Thus, cooling adds to peak demand. In the case of differentiated electricity prices, peak-hour cooling also has a negative impact on the energy bill. Both these effects could be avoided by moving the need for electricity from peak-hours to off-peak. Such measures are called grid-response.
