HPT Researchers Participate in Enerstock 2024, Showcasing Thermal Energy Storage Innovations

Published Jun 17, 2024

Last week, researchers from HPT participated in the Enerstock 2024 conference, held in Lyon, France, from June 5-7. Enerstock is a leading international conference on energy storage, addressing the latest developments in science, policies, and deployment. Organized every three years by the IEA Energy Storage Technology Collaboration Programme, it attracts hundreds of experts from around the world.

HPT Presentations

Day 1:

  • Haoyang Dong kicked off HPT's contributions with an insightful oral presentation titled, "Phase Change Material Integrated Underground Thermal Energy Storage in Heating and Cooling Applications: A Review". His presentation explored the potential of phase change materials to enhance the efficiency of thermal energy storage systems in various applications.

Day 2:

  • Lianying Shan presented on "High Temperature Thermal Energy Storage with Phase Change Materials in Concentrated Solar Power Systems: A Case Study." This presentation delved into innovative methods of utilizing phase change materials for high-temperature thermal storage, particularly in solar power systems.

  • Mateo Sanclemente Lozano shared his research through an oral presentation titled, "Integrated High Temperature Heat Pump and Thermal Energy Storage Laboratory Rig - Engineering Considerations and Preliminary Design."
