Online Workshop on Thermal Energy Storage for Building Applications by NIT Rourkela [Jan 25-29]: Register by Jan 21: Expired


The Department of Mechanical Engineering, National Institute of Technology (NIT), Rourkela, Odisha is organizing an Online Workshop on Thermal Energy Storage for Building Applications from January 25 to 29, 2021.
National Institute of Technology (NIT) Rourkela is an institution of national importance funded by the Ministry of Human Resource Development. NIT Rourkela was established as Regional Engineering College (REC) on August 15, 1961.
It is one of the premier national level institutions for technical education in the country. The main objective of the institute is to produce quality engineers and scientists at graduate, post-graduate and doctoral levels in various branches of Engineering and Science.

Course Objectives

The use of Thermal Energy Storage (TES) in buildings in combination with space heating, domestic hot water, and space cooling has recently received much attention. A variety of TES techniques have developed over the past decades, including building thermal mass utilization, Phase Change Materials (PCM), Underground Thermal Energy Storage, and energy storage tanks.
In this course, a review of the different concepts for building or on-site integrated TES is carried out. The aim is to provide the basis for the development of new intelligent TES possibilities in buildings.

Course Content

The course will cover the following major topics:

  1. Introduction to various energy storage systems
  2. Thermal energy storage system – types and practical issues
  3. State of art on thermal energy storage for building heating and cooling
  4. Indirect storage of electricity generated from solar and wind power stations
  5. Thermochemical energy storage—Absorption and adsorption systems
  6. Complex structures for fluid flow across TES
  7. Building thermal energy storage – concepts and applications
  8. Renewable energy-driven heating and cooling systems
