Title: Thermal and mechanical energy storage program, FY 1979: project summary data

Abstract

DOE's Division of Energy Storage Systems (STOR) is supporting a broad range of projects to conserve energy and to make possible shifting away from oil and natural gas by developing new and/or improved energy storage systems applicable to central power generation, dispersed power generating, solar and waste heat utilization, and vehicle propulsion. This summary report addresses categories on mechanical and magnetic energy storage, thermal and thermochemical energy storage, and chemical/hydrogen energy storage. Electrochemical energy storage is treated in a separate document. Summary reports for mechanical and magnetic energy storage are included for flywheels for vehicles, mechanical storage for solar energy, underground pumped hydroelectric, compressed air energy storage, and superconducting magnetic energy storage. Summary reports for thermal and thermochemical energy storage are included for low- and high-temperature thermal energy storage and thermochemical energy storage and transport. Summary reports for chemical/hydrogen energy systems are included for the production, storage, transport, and use of hydrogen and chemical storage other than hydrogen. The Technical and Economic Analysis Activity provides information needed to set and evaluate Energy Storage Program objectives and project summary data are given for this activity. Information on summary sheets includes project title, principal investigator, organization, project goals, project status,contract number andmore » period, and funding level and source. (MCW)« less
