TES is the temporary storage of thermal energy for later use, bridging the gap between energy availability and energy use. TES can reduce the chiller size by 50% by simply spreading the load over 24 hours period. It also reduces the running cost by utilising over-night lower ambient (possible free cooling) and lower electricity costs and also offers smaller roof space and full stand-by capability utilising +8~15°C Phase Change Material (PCM) containers for a conventional chilled water applications.
