Learning to love energy storage
The utility industry is trying to make electricity from the sun available even when it is not shining, overcoming one of the major shortcomings of solar power.
Air-Conditioning case study of Dundalk Institute of Technology.
One of the most effective energy management strategies is using the lowest cost energy whenever you can get it. The vast population of general use buildings consumes the bulk of energy during business hours when utility companies have variable rates often coupled with demand charges.
Thermal storage is alive and well and at the CALMAC booth.
In this podcast, CALMAC CEO, Mark MacCracken, discusses the role of thermal energy storage in the wind industry, the case study, and the company’s energy storage technology.
Thermal storage does not have to be storing heat. CALMAC installs systems that use off-peak electricity to make ice, and then uses the ice to run air-conditioners.
Market research report discusses most promising energy storage applications.
Tanks store nighttime wind energy in the form of ice.
