We share a small planet whose future is threatened by our growing thirst for energy. Fossil fuels – energy resources of today – are not evenly distributed on the earth. 10% of the world’s population exploits 90% of its resources. Today’s energy systems rely heavily on fossil fuel resources, which are diminishing ever faster. The world must prepare for a future without fossil fuels.
Thermal energy storage provides a flexible heating and cooling tool to combat climate change by both conserving energy and increasing energy while utilizing natural renewable energy resources. Thermal storage applications have been proven to be efficient and financially viable, yet they have not been exploited sufficiently.
Çukurova University, Turkey in collaboration with Ljubljana University, Slovenia and the International Energy Agency Implementing Agreement on Energy Conservation Through Energy Storage (IEA ECES IA) organized a NATO Advanced Study Institute on Thermal Energy Storage for Sustainable Energy Consumption – Fundamentals, Case Studies and Design (NATO ASI TESSEC), in Cesme, Izmir, Turkey in June, 2005.
