Ice Storage Systems

The grid of the future will incorporate a higher percentage of renewable energy. Unfortunately these energies have no natural storage mechanism.

One HVAC design option that can be especially effective is ice storage which also allows building operators to power their HVAC system more during cheaper off-peak periods than on-peak daytime periods.
