Thermal storage, specifically ice storage, is not only an easy way to store energy but it is reemerging as a valuable energy source and a way technology can be used to reduce energy costs for building owners. This presentation provides a bit of theory and application, then demonstrates the design steps for a small ice storage system from layout to operation and control. You will learn to:

  • Identify the components of an ice storage system and its application
  • Identify an economic rationale for ice storage and hidden costs that may raise ROI
  • Dispel common myths about ice storage
  • Avoid the most common stumbling blocks when designing for ice storage
