Viking Cold Solutions, Inc. conducted a Measurement and Verification (M&V) study of its thermal energy storage (TES)
technology installed in an industrial low-temperature cold storage warehouse owned by Dreisbach Enterprises in Richmond, CA.
The objectives of the M&V study were to determine the effectiveness of TES on energy efficiency and temperature stability with an ammonia-based refrigeration system.
The M&V study concluded that TES provided a 43% decrease in peak period consumption and a 29% decrease in peak
demand while improving overall temperature stability by 50% in a low temperature warehouse.
