- The study analyzes the commercial feasibility of thermal energy storage (TES) in buildings; TES applications examined include storage electric (resistance) heating, storage air conditioning, and storage hot water heating. A system model, SIMSTOR, is employed to simulate TES-related effects upon daily and annual utility load profiles and to compare utility fuel and capital cost savings with TES-system costs. Case-study analyses of TES applications for a representative set of utility service areas indicate that several already- and near-commercial TES systems are cost-effective. Alternative strategies to commercialize these systems are examined and the preferred strategies are identified.
