Evaluating Chilled-Water Storage for District Cooling Systems

This article provides guidance for evaluating chilled-water-storage systems, including methods for determining economic feasibility.

Since the days of the early Greeks, Romans, and Chinese, when, archaeologists believe, ice and snow was stored in caves for use during warm weather,1 man has been practicing thermal-energy storage (TES).

TES is achieved through two mechanisms: sensible-energy storage and latent-energy storage. Sensible-energy storage is accomplished by decreasing the temperature of the stored medium. Latent-energy storage is accomplished by changing the phase of the stored medium. F
