Scroll down for a growing library of papers on issues important to the building industry and design professionals. Read the latest on green energy related topics like renewables, the integration of renewables into the smart grid, demand response programs, along with a host of other critical areas that revolve around thermal storage technologies.
How will cooling system designs change? Just like automobiles have hybrid cars, cooling designs have hybrid designs that incorporate energy storage. Hybrid cooling systems with thermal energy storage systems use standard air conditioning chillers at night to create and store energy in the form of chilled water or ice for use the next day during peak periods of demand or high cost.
