Trane® Thermal Battery™ Cooling System Info for #ESACon19

The electric grid is changing, as concerns about climate change and renewable resources increase. Thermal energy storage is becoming more important to building owners and utilities for their ability to enable growth of renewable energy resources. By acquiring CALMAC®, Trane can now offer building owners superior full-service energy management solutions that include the Thermal Battery™ system--- thermal energy storage for a renewable future.

  • Supports renewable energy: A Thermal Battery system can increase renewable energy use up to 50% making renewable resources more effective and affordable.  That helps with zero net energy design.

  • Supports high performance: To have lowest cost of operation, a building must be agile.  A Thermal Battery system can store clean inexpensive energy, when available, to be used during periods of high demand to help lower the cost of operation.

  • Supports grid resiliency:  A Thermal Battery system helps overcome the intermittency of renewable energy.  It can store excess energy to be used during times when the sun does not shine or wind does not blow. Additionally, a recent study suggests that these systems do more to help the grid during heat storms than previously thought. This is important for both grid resource adequacy planning and providing proper financial compensation, which in turn means more incentives for owners.
