Thermal Storage Demonstration at CCHRC We're using a massive tank of water to store energy from the sun. Click here for live data!
Thermal Mass Study Thermal mass is the ability of a material to absorb and store heat energy, which can be useful when it comes to cold climate housing. This project clarifies the role of thermal mass in housing and includes a literature review and energy modeling with IDA Indoor Climate and Energy (ICE) software.
Thermal Storage Technology Assessment Thermal storage allows you to store heat for later use, such as storing solar or wood heat. This report examines the potential of thermal storage systems to enhance the use of renewable heating systems in cold climates and improve the efficiency of heating systems.
