Viking Cold Thermal Energy Storage System Reduces Frozen Gourmet’s Energy Costs by Over 27%

Cold Storage

For businesses in the frozen food market, energy costs are a major expense. Reducing the electricity used in storage facilities directly impacts the bottom line, making it a top priority for owners and operators. Cold storage operators who make the move to an innovative thermal energy storage system will realize significant cost savings, enhanced product monitoring, and protection for low temperature cold storage.

Frozen Gourmet, a dedicated Nestlé facility and a leading ice cream distribution company in California, recently installed a Viking Cold Thermal Energy Storage (TES) system and reduced energy consumption by over 27%.

The patented Viking Cold TES system was installed at the end of 2016, and Frozen Gourmet quickly realized significant energy savings. Since the beginning of 2017, the facility has reduced energy consumption by over 45,000 kWh, a number that continues to grow each month. In addition, the passive TES system stores energy at night for use during the day, shifting more compressor runtime to evening hours. This enables greater efficiency during periods of time with lower ambient temperatures.

Energy Storage Trends for the Cold Chain

Cold Storage

Anyone that pays an electric bill knows that cooling measures such as air conditioning and refrigeration require a lot of energy and cost a lot of money. So imagine the energy requirement and expense of running the refrigeration systems found in cold storage warehouses, supermarkets, and food processing facilities where temperature must be maintained at a specific level to avoid product spoilage. It’s a costly operation, but fortunately new technologies are emerging to provide thermal energy management to companies looking to cut refrigeration costs through improved energy efficiency.

Plaza Provision Company cuts energy costs by over 30% using Viking Cold’s Thermal Energy Storage System

Case Studies

Cost saving refrigeration units in warehouse

Thermal Energy Storage (TES) is an effective energy savings strategy that allows thermal energy to be stored when electricity is less expensive and used later when prices are higher and utility demand charges and consumption are at their daily peak. TES systems have been in use for decades, mainly in HVAC applications to lower energy costs and ease demand on the electrical grid.

Viking Cold Solutions™ Delivers Green, Cost-Effective Solar Thermal Energy Storage Solution to Help San Diego Food Bank Reduce Grid Energy Consumption by 95%

Case Studies

Thermal Energy Storage (TES) is an effective energy savings strategy that allows excess thermal energy to be collected and stored for later use—most typically when electrical utility demand charges are at their daily peak. TES systems have been in use for decades, mainly to lower energy costs and ease grid demand for air conditioning applications.

Players in other energy intensive applications such as refrigeration and cold food storage are now investigating the potential of TES as a means of moving away from an inflexible U.S. electrical grid system and toward a low-carbon energy generation future.

4 Thermal Energy Storage Benefits That Will Improve Your Bottom Line

Cold Storage, Supermarket

Viking Cold’s Thermal Energy Storage (TES) has many benefits for commercial businesses with high refrigeration based loads. Here are four of the main benefits that TES can provide.

1. Big Savings
Imagine a world where gasoline costs $3 per gallon, but you could buy the same gasoline at night for $.75 per gallon. What time of the day would you buy your gasoline? You probably would buy the $.75 per gallon gasoline at night, store that energy in your gas storage tank and then use it during the day.
