A bench top test bed is designed that investigates various, common mixtures for longterm energy storage by stored chemical energy. Low temperature energy captured by heat pipe is converted into chemical energy which is stored by separation of acid and salt solutions by means of evaporation. Mixing of separated elements results in an exothermic reaction there thermal energy may be extracted for use. The system is designed for lithium romide and water and sulfuric acid and water.
