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 Thermal Energy Storage. 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 reduce capital outlays when systems are suitably designed.
TES applications are numerous and include private industry, residential & commercial complexes, universities & 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 course is designed to meet the continuing professional development needs of individuals operating in the field of HVAC, energy conservation, architecture, environmentalists, campaigners and other professional engineers.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
