Thermal energy storage for space cooling, also known as cool storage, chill storage, or cool thermal storage, is a relatively mature technology that continues to improve through evolutionary design advances. Cool storage technology can be used to significantly reduce energy costs by allowing energy-intensive, electrically driven cooling equipment to be predominantly operated during off-peak hours when electricity rates are lower.
This course is based on the document Federal Technology Alert – Thermal Energy Storage for Space Cooling, DOE/EE-0241, December 2000.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
