Thermal Energy Storage System: where it can make a difference and why

Thermal Storage Benefits Thermal Energy Storage (TES) is a technology whereby thermal energy is produced during off-peak hours and stored for use during peak demand. TES is most widely used to produce chilled water during those off-peak times to provide cooling when the need for both cooling and pow[..]

6 Main Advantages of Using Seawater for District Cooling

Seawater has always been used as a practical resource for humankind in a wide extent. From the industries of fishing to medicine, it has then passed unavoidably through the energy field; electricity production or heat rejection are common practices in coastal industries. The latter mentioned applica[..]

Thermal energy equation physics in Thermal Energy Storage

Thermal Energy Storage (TES) is a technology which allows the storage and transfer of thermal energy, either heat or cold. TES takes advantage of off-peak periods of electrical demand to produce thermal energy, which is accumulated in the tank for later use during peak periods. Hot or chilled water [..]
