AbstractCurrent concern about the cost and potential shortage of traditional energy supplies has led to an increased interest in renewable energy. To fully utilize most renewable energy sources, however, economical energy storage systems are essential. This article describes a field test facility which will permit tests of full-scale in-ground storage units. The units vary from a classical well-insulated tank to a unit which uses undisturbed ground as the storage medium. Conceptual designs are included.
