This report discusses various approaches for decreasing freshwater demand, including regulatory and incentive mechanisms, water trading markets, and water pricing structures. These techniques can be relevant to electric utilities that seek to improve the sustainability of water resources used for power plant cooling.
Next Generation Thermal Energy Storage Using Composite Materials, Residential Water Heating Application
In this study, researchers designed a thermal energy storage system using phase-change composite materials and evaluated the storage capacity at different operating conditions for a residential water heater application. They also compared the economics of the storage system with that of a residential hot water storage tank.
