Mobile thermal storage facilities

Mobile thermal storage facilities can make use of heat emissions, for example from biogas plants and industrial processes, in a way that line-based transport systems cannot achieve cost-effectively. Technical and economic analyses provide many examples of how a mobile thermal storage facility offers lower heat generation costs compared to fossil fuels, while improving the CO2 balance in the process. Energy consumers that exhibit consistent energy usage over several years are especially capable of making optimum use of the system. Other potential uses include heat consumers whose consumption can be combined on the basis of their season-specific needs, for instance swimming pools in the summer and building heaters in the winter.

Compared with previous concepts for mobile thermal storage facilities based on traditional tube bundle heat exchangers, PCM hybrid storage based on HeatStaxx can offer a much greater heat transmission surface, which significantly increases the charging/discharging performance. Because the handling time is ultimately the most important factor in determining the cost efficiency of mobile thermal storage facilities, this enables generators and consumers to be connected together flexibly and simply for the first time over a distance of up to 20km.
