If you are looking for ways to reduce your energy cost, a Thermal Energy Storage (TES) Reservoir may be the solution. TES reservoirs exploit the natural tendency of water to reduce the energy cost during high peak demand. Matrix PDM Engineering can provide the design of a TES tank and TES diffuser for your tanks.
Matrix PDM’s TES diffuser designs are customized to the shape of the reservoir. Whether it is the underground basement walls of a building or the aboveground stand-alone steel tank, TES diffusers are designed as octagonal, H-Shaped or radial to minimize any disturbance to the water layers while charging or discharging.
If you are retrofitting or planning new construction, investing in TES can provide the following benefits:
- Reducing Capital Expense Cost
Reduce the equipment cost by reducing the required number and capacity of chillers and cooling equipment.
- Reducing Operation Cost
Reduce the demand for high capacity and high quantity chillers operation during high peak periods. Reducing the operation cost during high peak demand by discharging energy from TES reservoir. Storing energy during off peak hours based on cheaper utility rates.
- Reducing Maintenance Cost
A fewer number of chillers with lesser capacity would result in lower maintenance costs. The maintenance cost of a chilled TES water tank is minimal.
- Fire Suppression and Safety
Chilled TES tanks an be a water reservoir source for any fire suppression system.
- Incentives and Faster Return On Investment
With many direct cash incentives and rebates offered by utility companies, the TES tank return on investment is realized within a few years.
