State of the Art Review of Seasonal Sensible Heat Storage Tianrun Yang, Wen Liu, Gert Jan Kramer, Qie Sun



This paper reviewed seasonal sensible heat storage which is the most mature storage concept from technical and economic points of view. The results showed that tank storage and pit storage have higher storage capacity and less geological requirements, while borehole storage and aquifer storage are more economically effective.
