Argonne National Laboratory mechanical engineer Wenhua Yu prepares to test a prototype thermal energy storage system developed at Argonne that will charge and discharge 20 times faster than current high-efficiency latent heat thermal energy storage systems. Testing validates the amount of thermal energy that can be stored and how efficiently it can be recovered for concentrated solar power and other potential applications.
