Trane Thermal Battery™ systems are premier HVAC plants designed to be a distributed resource for our changing grid. Their ability to store thermal energy can make your buildings more profitable, sustainable and grid-resilient.
How our Systems Work
Trane Thermal Battery systems are Trane-controlled chiller plants
enhanced with thermal energy storage. The chiller plant operates like
a battery: charging when excess or inexpensive energy is available, or
when outdoor conditions improve efficiency, and discharging when
demand is high, price is high or when the utility or grid operator
asks for help meeting capacity.
Lower dependency on more emissive fossil fuels
Optimize building operation for changing grid conditions
Your Solutions Partner – Start to Finish
Trane works with you to develop a comprehensive, customized thermal battery system solution, optimizing for occupant comfort while aligning with your business goals. We also support you throughout the design process and confirm that the plan meets your qualifications from start to finish. Post-implementation, we can help ensure that the system adapts to changing conditions like utility rates, weather, and use of renewables

Thermal Battery Air-Cooled Chiller Plant
The Trane® Thermal Battery air-cooled chiller plant is a thermal
energy storage system which can make installation simpler and more
repeatable, helping to save on design time and construction cost.
Advantage: To streamline the design and user experience;
Reduce water usage
Ideal for: Building owners with limited
plant operation staffing; Engineers looking to offer advanced system
performance without additional design time
The Thermal Battery™ Storage Source Heat Pump system builds on the benefits of thermal energy storage for cooling and extends its benefits to heating. Water-cooled chillers charge CALMAC energy storage tanks which store and recover energy for delivering heating and cooling.
Advantage: Recovers energy from previous day to offset or eliminate new energy for heating
Ideal for: Building owners and engineers looking to decarbonize and meet new electrification building codes
