Mr John Jurns (ESS)
The European Spallation Source (ESS) neutron spallation project has committed to an energy management strategy that minimizes cost, lowers environmental impact, and factors out variability in energy. The ESS energy management strategy is based on four pillars: Responsible, Renewable, Recyclable, and Reliable. Recycling waste heat from the facility plays a major role in meeting the ESS energy management strategy. We discuss the overall waste heat recovery strategy, cryoplant and klystron waste heat contributions, risks and challenges, and plans to optimize recovery of heat from these systems.
