SOLAR HEAT STORAGE

http://www.warmwater.com

THERMAL MASS HEAT STORAGE
------------------
Some European manufactures use the floor for thermal mass heat storage. This can keep the building warm for three to 
seven days if electricity is lost or there are many cloudy days in a row or if there is little daylight during the winter.

One method is to put a layer of insulation on the ground, using the same insulation that is used for the Monolithic 
Dome, see www.monolithicdome.com. A three foot (one meter) layer of sand is placed over the insulation. In the sand is 
placed the hydronic radiant floor heating system or hot water pipes. Then the flooring system is placed on top of the sand.

A deeper base of sand may use to obtain more thermal mass for areas of extreme cold. The hot water heats up the thermal 
mass of sand allowing the retained heat to keep the building warm if electricity is lost or there are many cloudy days.

An additional option for multi story buildings is to place one foot ( 1/3 meter) of sand between upper level floors and 
to place additional hydronic heating pipes in the sand. A floor systems is placed on top of the sand. The building has 
be built extra strong to withstand the additional weight of sand sub-flooring. Some manufactures use the steel framing 
method for homes and building to obtain the strength needed for the additional weight of the sand. See www.tri-steel.com 
for steel homes and buildings.

WATER BATTERY
------------------
economical energy storage for developing countries and for remote sites:
Use a Ram Pump to pump water to an elevated storage tank. Then use the gravity of the water in the storage tank to 
generate electricity by utilizing a Micro-Hydro generator.
