Cold Thermal Energy Storage

Learn how this sustainable technology can help in carbon offsetting and reducing energy bills.




Unlocking the Potential of Cold Thermal Energy Storage: A Sustainable Future

In today’s world, sustainable energy solutions are paramount. Cold Thermal Energy Storage (CTES) emerges as a leading technology, heralding a new era of efficiency and environmental responsibility. CTES, both innovative and straightforward, revolutionises energy management. It’s particularly crucial in regions with significant temperature variations and cooling needs.

Understanding Cold Thermal Energy Storage

CTES primarily employs water or ice for energy storage. It conserves energy during low-demand periods, utilising it for cooling at peak times. At night, when energy costs are lower, the system chills a medium like water or glycol. This ‘cold’ then assists in cooling spaces or systems during peak times, mitigating the load on conventional cooling methods.

CTES: Shaping a Sustainable Future

Utilising thermodynamics, CTES cools the storage medium at night and releases the cold during the day, reducing the burden on standard cooling systems and aiding grid stability.

Ice storage, a common CTES approach, optimises energy use by freezing water at night to later melt for cooling, especially during peak and expensive periods.
