A Thermal Energy battery is physical structure used for the purpose of storing and releasing thermal energy—see also Thermal energy storage. Such a Thermal Battery (a.k.a. TBat) allows energy available at one time to be temporarily stored and then released at another time. The basic principles involved in a thermal battery occur at the atomic level of matter, with energy being added to or taken from either a solid mass or a liquid volume which causes the substance's temperature to change. Some Thermal Batteries also involve causing a substance to transition thermally through a Phase transition which causes even more energy to be stored and released due to the delta Enthalpy of fusion or delta Enthalpy of vaporization.

  • A Thermal Energy battery is physical structure used for the purpose of storing and releasing thermal energy—see also Thermal energy storage. Such a Thermal Battery (a.k.a. TBat) allows energy available at one time to be temporarily stored and then released at another time. The basic principles involved in a thermal battery occur at the atomic level of matter, with energy being added to or taken from either a solid mass or a liquid volume which causes the substance's temperature to change. Some Thermal Batteries also involve causing a substance to transition thermally through a Phase transition which causes even more energy to be stored and released due to the delta Enthalpy of fusion or delta Enthalpy of vaporization. Thermal batteries come in two basic basic forms - encapsulated and un-encapsulated Ground Heat Exchanger (GHEX). (en)
