Thermal energy storage (TES) system is a load shifting strategy for creation of cooling to off-peak hours. In a TES system, a storage media is cooled during periods of low cooling demand and the stored cooling is used later to meet air-conditioning load or process cooling loads. Operating refrigeration chillers at night and displacing energy use from peak (day time) to off-peak periods when the energy is at a lower cost is the primary objective of TES system.

As a proven technology, chilled water or ice thermal storage systems supply the desired reliability for high air conditioning availability during peak hours and can substantially cut operating costs and reduces capital outlays when systems are suitably designed. It offers building owners the potential for substantial operating cost savings by using off-peak electricity to produce chilled water or ice for use in cooling during peak-hours.

TES applications are numerous and include private industry, residential and commercial complexes, universities and school campus, hospitals, hotels, other government facilities, and district cooling utility systems (i.e. systems in which a business operates a centralized chilled water plant and utilizes a distribution network to sell chilled water to multiple cooling customer facilities).

This four-hour course provides the overview of various TES technology options and discusses their inherent pros and cons.

This course is applicable to architects, air-conditioning engineers, controls engineers, contractors, environmentalists, energy auditors and loss prevention professionals. It is assumed that all the readers know the basic functioning of the air-conditioning system.
