Abstract

This volume contains the proceedings of the 1982 workshop (the first international one in this field) at Ispra (14th-16th September). It served the pooling of information, laid the foundation for closer detailed collaboration and for future information exchanges (establishment of an information centre at CEC Ispra). It was found that several promising systems and component developments have been produced although much of the work is still only in the research stage. The systems involve a broad range of technological issues and a number of questions remain to be answered, particularly in the field of energy storage in different types of ground. No common systems design methodology yet exists, nor are there common solutions for engineering ground storage. Furthermore, the cost effectiveness of a number of systems, although promising, is based upon prototype development. Critical areas of required research effort are pointed out in the areas of ground storage, solar collectors and heat pumps, and system design.
