Allowing excess chilled or hot water to be stored in storage tanks and used when needed
Energy storage, including thermal energy storage, is important in securing a balanced energy system with increased amounts of renewable, fluctuating energy. Depending on the specific technology, thermal energy storage allows excess thermal energy (e.g. chilled or hot water) to be stored in storage tanks and used hours, days or months later. By implementing storage in energy production, the system becomes better at absorbing surplus wind power, solar thermal energy and surplus heat from power production, providing energy security during peak periods.
We invite you to explore solutions related to thermal energy storage in more depth below, find potential partners, catch up on the latest news and discover real-life case examples of how thermal energy storage can help solve energy issues.

This project demonstrates how smart cities are built on smart solutions that promote synergies between district heating, district cooling, waste water, ground water and power while benefiting the local community.
OUTPUT FROM THERMAL INSPECTIONS: New computer software has made it possible to present the thermal data acquired by drones in an easily accessible web solution using a common internet browser. All data is analysed and categorized, and placed on a web-server in the cloud. The hot spots in the pictures are divided into categories.
1 million consumers benefit from smart energy solution in Greater Copenhagen. 95% of all heat is generated by CHP plants fuelled by waste and biomass. Only 5% from boilers. The system is now in a transition towards smart integration of wind energy via large heat pumps and electric boilers, and CHP plants with storages, which can respond on electricity prices .
