Ice Banking Wind Power

Ice Banking Wind Power

Calmac has come up with a storage system called IceBank that uses the energy generated at off-peak night-time hours to make ice. That stored ice is then used for cooling purposes during high-demand daytime hours.

Reducing the peak daytime demand for electricity can cut cooling costs 20-40%, source energy and emissions are reduced and construction of new power plants and transmission lines can be delayed or eliminated.

This is a great idea, and makes wind power that much more efficient!
