Study Confirms 43% Decrease in Energy Consumption in an Ammonia-Refrigerated Warehouse with Viking Cold Solutions’ Thermal Energy Storage Technology – Significant Benefits for Cold Storage and Grid Operators

Richmond, CA and Houston, TX (Business Wire) — Viking Cold Solutions, the leading Thermal Energy Storage (TES) provider for the low-temperature cold storage industry, announced that its measurement and verification (M&V) study on Viking Cold’s TES technology at Dreisbach Enterprises’ 93,000 square foot frozen food distribution center in Richmond, CA  shows significant operational and financial benefits for utilities and the cold storage industry. The study demonstrated the ability of TES to mitigate the facility’s 13-hour peak period by simultaneously:

  • reducing peak period energy consumption by up to 43 percent
  • reducing peak demand within this peak period by up to 29 percent
  • maintaining 50 percent more stable temperatures

Refrigeration is the third highest electricity consuming utility category, and the cold storage industry is a prime target for load distribution management solutions. Cold storage operators, the grocery industry, and utilities challenged with managing peak loads on the electrical grid can all benefit from the refrigeration efficiency and load shift capabilities of TES.
