Viale Europa, 40 – 41011 Campogalliano (MO), Italy Tel. +39059 526845 – Fax +39059 527000 Thermal Energy Storage Energy storage plays an important role in conserving energy for on-demand utilization. Thermal Energy Storage (TES) technologies work in heat recovery and contribute in improving the performance of the thermal systems. TES technologies work simply containing mediums which are able to store the thermal energy (charging mode) and release the stored thermal energy (discharging mode) to compensate for the shortage in the main thermal source. Nanomaterials (nanofluids and nanocomposites) can be used as additive to enhance the properties of base materials used in TES technologies.
