Ice-Grid - Implementation of ice storage tanks into 5GDHC networks

Within the project Ice-Grid possible application of ice-storage tanks in low temperature thermal networks will be analyzed. In combination with other storages, ice-storage tanks can help to shift the availability of heat or cold. As latent heat can be used at 0 °C within an ice storage, this type of storage is of particular interest regarding the coverage of future cooling requirements. The integration of ice storage tanks into expanding networks with limited sources, such as low temperature waste heat, will be investigated. For analyzing the effects and comparison with state of the art components generic low temperature thermal networks are simulated, and different variants compared.
