Thermal Energy Storage (TES) is an effective energy savings strategy that allows excess thermal energy to be collected and stored for later use—most typically when electrical utility demand charges are at their daily peak. TES systems have been in use for decades, mainly to lower energy costs and ease grid demand for air conditioning applications.
This Case Study from Viking Cold details the solution The Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank settled on when looking for just such a sustainable and low-cost energy solution. The food bank is the largest hunger-relief organization in San Diego County, CA, and serves an average of 400,000 people per month. Feeding this many people requires a lot of food—some 22 million pounds per year—that must be safely stored and refrigerated, with minimal waste and at the lowest energy cost possible.
