About this book

This book presents the latest advances in thermal energy storage development at both the materials and systems level. It covers various fields of application, including domestic, industrial and transport, as well as diverse technologies, such as sensible, latent and thermochemical. 
The contributors introduce readers to the main performance indicators for thermal storage systems, and discuss thermal energy storage (TES) technologies that can be used to improve the efficiency of energy systems and increase the share of renewable energy sources in numerous fields of application. In addition to the latest advances, the authors discuss the development and characterization of advanced materials and systems for sensible, latent and thermochemical TES, as well as the TES market and practical applications. They also report on and assess the feasibility of uniform characterization protocols and main performance indicators, compared to previous attempts to be found in the literature. 
The book will help to increase awareness of thermal energy storage technologies in both the academic and industrial sectors, while also providing experts new tools to achieve a uniform approach to thermal energy storage characterization methods. It will also be of interest to all students and researchers seeking an introduction to recent innovations in TES technologies.   

About the authors

Dott. Andrea Frazzica holds a Master’s degree in Materials Engineering (2008) and a PhD in Chemical and Materials Engineering (2012), both from the University of Messina. Since 2008 he has been working at the National Council of Research’s Institute for Advanced Energy Technologies (CNR-ITAE) in Messina, Italy. Currently he holds the position of senior researcher, focusing on development of materials and components for thermal energy storage and conversion. He is actively involved in the IEA’s HPT, ECES and SHC TCPs.   

Prof. Luisa F. Cabeza holds degrees in Chemical Engineering (1992) and Industrial Engineering (1993) from the Universitat Ramon Llull (Barcelona, Spain), as well as a Master’s degree in Business Management (1995) and a PhD in Industrial Engineering (1996) from the same university. From 1996 to 1998 she held a post-doctoral position at the ERRC-ARS-USDA (Philadelphia, USA). In 1999 she joined the University of Lleida, Spain, where she founded the research group GREA (today GREiA), a leading think-tank on thermal energy storage. She is active in the IEA’s ECES TCP, the RHC platform and the SPIRE PPP. She has also participated in the IPCC’s SRREN and AR5.
