Thermal Energy Storage used for off-peak cooling of buildings, has a long history around the world with over 6,000 commercial installations in 35 countries. By storing cooling at night, in the form of ice or chilled water, and using it during the day to cool the buildings, major reductions in on-peak electric demand and energy costs are realized. This talk will demonstrate the basic types of TES systems, how they save energy and reduce costs and how this relates to the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED rating system.
