is among the top two operational expenses for a cold storage facility.
Peak demand charges can be up to 70% of your electricity bill.
Temperature control is required around the clock to keep food safe.
Viking Cold’s Thermal Energy Storage System makes it possible for cold storage facilities to protect what is vital while intelligently storing and deploying refrigeration to reduce energy costs. Our Thermal Energy Storage System is a passive system that never needs maintenance and works in parallel with existing refrigeration systems. As a result, electricity peak demand is reduced by up to 90 percent, a significant cost savings.
The system can be easily installed without any upgrades to your current refrigeration equipment, adding redundancy and maximizing savings.
Increase the Value of Solar PV
Store energy during the day and use it for refrigeration at night. Thermal Energy Storage solutions store refrigeration when electricity costs are lowest and uses it when electricity costs are highest saving up to 95% of consumption at night.
Lower Peak Demand Charges
Peak load shedding or shifting at any time of day increases savings during periods of renewable variability or at peak rate times. Thermal Energy Storage can offset a significant portion of expensive on-peak demand charges, up to 90%.
Simple Design, Built to Last
The Viking Cold solution is designed to last 20 years, has no moving parts and is maintenance free. Unlike competing products, the system is easy to install and works alongside your existing refrigeration equipment.
Thermal Backup Protection
When the power goes out or mechanical systems fail, Viking Cold systems keeps your facility cold. Your business is protected from costly product loss.
Protection In Real-time
Our monitoring and reporting system provides predictive tools to protect your business. When refrigeration begins to degrade, alarms provide early warning before expensive problems arise.
Flexible Purchase Options
Viking Cold Solutions™ will work with your company to install a system tailored to your business, with many flexible purchase options to protect your balance sheet.

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.
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.
Butterfield and Vallis, a leading food distributor in Bermuda, is saving over 40% of their electricity consumption using Viking Cold’s Thermal Energy Storage Solution. Viking Cold’s patented thermal energy cells were installed in the ceiling of Butterfield and Vallis' 10,000-square-foot warehouse freezer in 2015. The Thermal Energy Storage System absorbs heat, allowing the chillers to run less frequently and keeping the warehouse within a few degrees of -18º Celsius.
