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 is 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.
