Mobile thermal energy storage technologies

Published 27 April, 2022


The continued increase in world energy consumption, coupled with the requirement to decarbonise the heating sector, is accelerating the technological development of efficient, renewable systems for thermal generation, and is driving efficiency improvements in those already available.  

Thermal energy storage (TES) is one of the most cost-effective solutions to counteract the mismatch between supply patterns of variable renewable energy sources and the demand patterns of the end-user. In addition to all the capabilities of TES, mobile thermal energy storage (M-TES) provides energy distribution services that solve the mismatch between energy supply and demand regarding location, enabling thermal energy transportation and supporting the distributed energy systems.

This special issue aims to raise more awareness and encourage more discussions on the latest developments and applications of mobile thermal energy storage technologies.

Topics covered:

They include, but are not limited to:

  • M-TES material studies
  • M-TES system optimisation
  • Cooling and thermal management of vehicles
  • Grid integration and optimisation of M-TES technologies
  • Case studies
  • Life cycle assessment
  • Techno-economic analysis
