Thermal Energy Storage Solutions

Reduce peak electrical demand charges and maximize your property's efficiency with a thermal energy storage system

  • Solar energy
  • HVAC and zoning
  • Lighting
  • Batteries
  • Thermal storage
  • Backup generators
  • Building automation systems
  • Is thermal energy right for your building? Consider these things:

    • If the facility currently has a chiller or cooling loop, ice energy can be incorporated with the existing chiller.
    • Minimal maintenance required and long lifespan
    • System sizing is crucial.  A careful assessment of the number of hours that peak load must be met with stored cooling could show that a considerably smaller storage system may only minimally affect demand reduction.
    • Demand usage can be reduced substantially, or even eliminated

    Quick Facts

    • Expected ROI Usually between 3-5 years, depending on the incentives and utility provider
    • Time to Install – Typically around 2 weeks

    Thermal Energy for increased efficiency

    Thermal energy systems act as a battery for your HVAC system.

    A thermal energy system utilizes a large tank filled with water and glycol that uses energy at night to freeze the water and form ice.

    During the day, the ice melts and creates vapor that is then dispersed throughout the building to keep it cool.

    Night time (or off-peak hours) is the cheapest and most efficient time of day to use electricity. So, utilizing these off-peak hours allows for a cost-effective solution to using energy rather than during the day when utilities are at their peak.

    Utilizing thermal energy storage:

    Thermal energy storage systems can potentially save you $10,000’s on electrical costs

    Thermal energy systems are similar to batteries in the sense that they store energy. Thermal energy storage however, stores ice that is then discharged throughout the day to generate power for your building’s other assets.
