Thermal Energy Storage

  • Robert A. Huggins


It was mentioned in that a significant portion of the total energy use is for lighting and temperature control in living and working spaces. Energy use for lighting purposes comprises between 20 and 50% of the energy used in homes, and varies appreciably with both location and time of the year, of course. This is expected to decrease substantially as the result of the use of fluorescent and light-emitting-diode (LED) devices in the future.
