C.F. Meyer, in Energy Storage, CONCLUSIONS. Aquifer thermal energy storage is a technology whose time has come. It inherently is most suitable for large-scale application, because the loss per unit of heat stored depends on the ratio of the surface area of the hot water to its volume.

Aquifer thermal energy storage (ATES) is the storage and recovery of thermal energy in the subsurface. ATES is applied to provide heating and cooling to buildings. Storage and recovery of thermal energy is achieved by extraction and injection of groundwater from aquifers using groundwater wells.

Systems commonly operate in a seasonal mode. Philip W. Visser, Henk Kooi, Pieter J.

The aquifer storage system consists of three cold wells and three warm wells. The dimensions of the wells are given in Table For this dimensioning, it was assumed that it would not be possible to screen the Lower Cohansey aquifer over the full height and that the MFI value of the groundwater in the aquifer is 2 s 2 /l; criteria that were.

69–   1. Introduction. Thermal energy storage (TES) is playing an increasingly important role in the field of energy supply and consumption because it can bridge the gap between energy supply and demand and improve the total utilization ratio of thermal energy.Aquifer thermal energy storage (ATES), which usually uses natural underground saturated aquifers as the storage medium, may be.

disadvantages of the doublet supply-injection well configuration in an aquifer thermal energy storage (ATES) system and to report on aquifer storage problems with injection temperatures in the 80øC range. A 3-month injection-storage-recovery cycle followed by a.

To aid in testing the idea of storing thermal energy in aquifers, an experiment was performed by Auburn University in wh m 3 of water was pumped from a shallow supply aquifer, heated to an average temperature of 55°C, and injected into a deeper confined aquifer where the ambient temperature was 20°C.

After a storage period of 51 days, 55, m 3 of water were produced from. Being a heat source or sink, aquifers have been used to store large quantities of thermal energy to match cooling and heating supply and demand on both a short-term and long-term basis.

The current technical, economic, and environmental status of aquifer thermal energy storage (ATES) is promising. General information on the basic operation principles, design, and construction of ATES systems. Introduction Aquifer thermal energy storage (ATES) is the process of storing heat in an aquifer by injecting water of a different temperature than the ambient groundwater into the aquifer, storing it for one cycle, then recovering the heated or cooled water for use in a heat exchange system.

The Aquifer Thermal-Energy Storage (ATES) system was a doublet-wall design in which the injection and withdrawal wells were spaced approximately m apart. High-temperature water from the university's steam-generation facilities supplied heat for injection.
