Carbon dioxide semi-clathrate hydrate for cold storage based air conditioning systems: materials and applications

Wang, Xiaolin


The increasing use of household air conditioning has been claimed to be one of the main drivers for peak electricity grid load over the past decade. Cold thermal energy storage (CTES) allows excess cooling capacity to be collected and conserved for later use; thus it is proposed to alleviate peak diurnal electricity demand problems. This thesis investigates the potential for CTES equipped air conditioning systems to time shift demand on electricity grids. In particular, CTES allows air...[Show more]
