Abstract
In this brief note, a first assessment on the possibilities for thermal osmotic storage using the thermal precipitation of aqueous solutions as alternative to sensible heat storage is performed. In a recent study it was found that the thermal dependence of the solubility of many common aqueous solutions could be harnessed to transform thermal energy into osmotic energy and then to run a heat powered cycle. Here, a scoping study is performed on the possibility to use such a property to storage th...
