Absorption Machine with Integrated Energy Storage
SaltX embarked on an ambitious project to design, develop and evaluate a flexible absorption machine that could utilise low temperature heat and operate as a chiller, heat pump as well as an integrated energy store. Such a machine has significant potential to utilise waste heat for cooling purposes as well as storage waste and/or excess energy in times of plenty to be utilised in times of scarcity.
