Seasonal Storage for Solar Thermal Systems in Australia? (2007)

This study from 2007 explores the potential for setting up in Australia large centralized solar heating plants with seasonal storage. These are long-term storage systems, which allow energy being collected in summer, and delivered in winter. The study aims to evaluate these systems - which already exist in Europe - in an Australian context.

The study also provides the results of a simulation of a hypothetical system, which has been applied to six cities in Australia. The economic viability of the seasonal storage is the key-obstacle, which is recurrently mentioned regarding the use of this technology.
