URL More about University of Texas Pan-Am Thermal Energy Storage
In 2002, the University of Texas – Pan American contracted Natgun Corporation to construct a 1.07 MG, 10,000 ton-hr thermal energy storage tank (TES) for the purpose of saving energy costs, and to provide back-up cooling in the event of unplanned downtime of their chillers. The TES system was designed to shift the electric load of the chillers from on-peak periods (daytime) to off-peak periods (night time).
