Carrier Thermal Energy Storage system
In a global context affected by a continuous increase of electricity prices and the challenge of reducing our environment impact, energy must be saved and controlled. For energy demand management and sustainable approach to intelligent buildings, Carrier proposes the Thermal Energy Storage technology (TES) by latent heat. Carrier Thermal Energy Storage key beneﬁts
REDUCED MAINTENANCE & ELECTRICITY COSTS
The TES technology consists of Phase Change Materials (PCM) used to store in nodules the cooling thermal energy produced by chillers. By storing the thermal energy during the night and releasing it during the day, this solution allows using the electricity at the lowest prices and avoids the peaks. By spreading the thermal energy production over 24 hours, TES can reduce the capacity of the chillers by 30% to 70%*.
