About this book

We all share a small planet. Our growing thirst for energy already threatens the future of our earth. Fossil fuels - energy resources of today - are not evenly distributed on the earth. 10% of the world's population exploits 90% of its resources. Today's energy systems rely heavily on fossil fuel resources which are diminishing ever faster.

The world must prepare for a future without fossil fuels.

Thermal energy storage provides us with a flexible heating and/or cooling tool to combat climate change through conserving energy and increasing energy while utilizing natural renewable energy resources.

Thermal storage applications have been proven to be efficient and financially viable, yet they have not been exploited sufficiently.

#ukurova University, Turkey in collaboration with Ljubljana University, Slovenia and the International Energy Agency Implementing Agreement on Energy Conservation Through Energy Storage (IEA ECES IA) has organized this NATO Advanced Study Institute on Thermal Energy Storage for Sustainable Energy Consumption - Fundamentals, Case Studies and Design (NATO ASI TESSEC), in Cesme, Izmir, Turkey on June 6-17, 2005.

Eminent experts who have worked in a number of Annexes of IEA ECES IA were among the lecturers of this Advanced Study Institute. 24 lecturers from Canada, Germany, Japan, The Netherlands, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, and USA have all enthusiastically contributed to the scientific programme. In #esme, Turkey, 65 students from 17 countries participated in this 2 week summer school.

This book contains the manuscripts prepared based on the lectures included in the scientific programme of the NATO ASI TESSEC. You can also find the design example assignments from the computer workshops.
