CALMAC IceBank energy storage featured in Turkish construction magazine.
When the California Lottery sought to construct new headquarters, officials wanted a location that would be both functional and save on energy costs.
NRDC reports on FERC order 784, adding that energy storage, demand response, and other demand-side resources not only help to integrate renewables, but can help avoid extending the lives of unnecessary marginal generation or building expensive transmission upgrades.
With the looming closure of the 2-gigawatt Indian Point nuclear reactor, New York City utility Con Edison has submitted a proposal to furnish 100 megawatts of load reduction measures that include energy storage, demand response and energy efficiency.
The HVAC system is rarely thoroughly studied or analyzed until there is a problem.Replacing the chiller with a newer version (i.e. the ‘like-for-like’ method) is all too often the chosen solution, simply because it is the quickest option. However, this can represent a missed opportunity.
First ice thermal energy storage cooling project in Aruba!
New study identifies additional strategies that California is already working on to address renewable integration including investment in energy storage.
At last years 11th annual Urban Green Gala awards dinner, Building a Greener New York, the Urban Green Council honored three innovators: Mark MacCracken, CEO of CALMAC Manufacturing Corp.; Rafael Pelli, partner, Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects; and Steven Winter, founder and president of Steven Winter Associates
