Thermal Energy Storage System Overview

Thermal energy storage is like a battery for a building’s air-conditioning system. It uses standard cooling equipment and energy storage tanks. During off-peak hours, ice is made and stored inside energy storage tanks. The stored cooling is then used to cool the building occupants during expensive on peak periods.

Thermal Energy Storage reduces cooling costs and can also increase the utilization of intermittent renewable energy resources by as much as 50%, which can help with zero net energy design and meeting renewable energy targets. 

Chiller plants enhanced with Thermal Energy Storage can provide buildings with greater energy agility and are an instrumental part of grid reliability. Thermal energy storage tanks are modular, non-corroding, have predictable cataloged performance and come in various heights for flexible options to fit the available space.
