Long-duration energy storage + efficiency DER: flexible DM

Viking Cold’s long-duration Thermal Energy Storage (TES) solution delivers energy storage plus efficiency in C&I refrigeration. Systems have a 20+ year life, up to 13-hour daily discharges, and require no maintenance nor real estate. With an LCOE<2¢ per kWh, TES delivers economical demand management to power providers and grid operators.

  • Thermal Energy Storage Systems
    Long-duration Thermal Energy Storage systems deliver new demand management access to low-temperature C&I refrigeration (warehouses, grocery stores, restaurants, more). TES stores up to 2MW per facility & discharges up to 13 hours/day. LCOE<2¢ per kWh....

  • Viking Cold’s long-duration Thermal Energy Storage (TES) technology sits behind the meter and leverages the heat transference properties of phase change material, intelligent controls, and 24/7 monitoring and reporting software to reduce energy consumption and shift time-of-use for up to 13 hours per day while better maintaining stable freezer temperatures to safeguard frozen product.

    This happens because the TES systems allow the energy-intensive refrigeration equipment to be turned off for long periods of time during peak periods, or at times when renewable energy sources go offline, to flatten out demand spikes. TES now provides utilities access to the enormous load of the cold storage industry for additional grid capacity and resiliency. This newly accessible load helps utilities delay costly infrastructure projects and provides a path to engagement with commercial and industrial customers. Viking Colds TES technology has been tested, accepted, and incentivized in many utilities projects across North America (Southern California Edison, San Diego Gas & Electric, Pacific Gas & Electric, Eversource, more), and our systems are installed and running in multiple countries.

    Utility Benefits of Thermal Energy Storage

    • Utility tested, accepted, and incentivized technology

    Thermal Energy Storage System Components

    1. Intelligent Controls, Monitoring, and Notification
    • Sub-system easily integrates with existing controls
    • Prioritize temperatures and food quality while reducing kWh consumption
    • Unique capability to shed load for extended periods while increasing energy efficiency
    • Real-time monitoring of temperatures, equipment status, and energy use
    • Energy efficiency reports and recommendations
    • Notifications via email, text, telephone
    • Identify equipment or operational issues before they become costly problems
    1. Thermal Energy Storage Cells
    • Individually sealed, non-circulating HDPE cells
    • Filled with environmentally-friendly Phase Change Material (PCM)
    • PCM formulas range from -20º F to 32º F (-28º C to 0º C)
    • Attract and absorb 300 times more heat per pound than frozen food
    • Absorb and transfer heat 8 times faster than frozen food
