Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;May2010, Vol. 82 Issue 5, p34
The article discusses the concepts and benefits of the ice-based thermal-energy storage (TES), and the issue on whether it is economically and environmentally feasible. It mentions that the TES system is environment-friendly because it often offer heat-recovery opportunities. It offers a review on the actual ice-based TES installations in Beijing, China and at the Nova Southeastern University (NSU) in Florida to better understand the TES-system sustainability.
