Thermal Flywheeling in Refrigerated Warehouses


Thermal energy storage within the cold-storage warehousing sector offers an exciting opportunity for cost reduction and grid stability. The U.S. food supply is one of the largest readily-accessible energy storage mediums in the world, and it can be unlocked primarily with software. This talk will present the theory of flywheeling, data from its application in the field, financial results, as well as thoughts on what’s in store for the refrigeration industry and beyond.

Silent auction wrap-up and socializing 1:00 pm to 1:30
