Thermo-chemical storage and transfer of solar energy using CO2/CH4 and CO/H2 methanation reactions

Technical Report:

Abstract

A lack of storage and transfer technologies for high temperature solar energy remains an impediment to the utilisation of this energy source for large scale continuous production of electricity. A comparison of the options for energy storage and transmission shows that using reversible chemical reactions with large heats of reaction is an efficient method for accomplishing these tasks. This project developed a novel thermochemical technology for storage and transfer of solar energy using reversible reactions of CO2/CH4 reforming and CO/H2 methanation which has the potential to be developed further. 16 figs., 2 tabs.
