What are the benefits of chilled water storage in district cooling?

Introduction Chilled Water Storage, being a form of sensible energy storage, utilizes a large insulated tank as a storage vessel for chilled water.  In District Cooling Plants, Chilled Water Storage is used to store the excess chilled water generated by the chillers during periods of low cooling demand. During peak periods, when the cooling demand…

What is District Cooling?

In traditional in-building air-conditioning systems, each building is provided with their own refrigeration systems for producing chilled water. With the exception of a few larger scale developments, the majority of buildings which are smaller in size tend to adopt more energy intensive cooling technologies such as air-cooled packaged units or water cooled chiller units without thermal energy storage system.

District Cooling offers a sustainable and energy efficient solution for the modern urban development. District cooling systems produce cooling energy, in the form of chilled water, at a central chiller plant. The chilled water is supplied to multiple end-user buildings via a piping network for comfort cooling.
