NC State University’s new thermal energy storage project on Centennial Campus is featured in the Winter 2020 edition of District Energy magazine.
The quarterly magazine is produced by the International District Energy Association and has a readership of more than 5,000 industry professionals from around the world.
“This article highlights what the Facilities Division is doing behind the scenes to support the university’s mission and reduce costs,” said Alan Daeke, NC State’s director of utilities and engineering.
Daeke co-authored the article with Greg Carnathan and Jonathan Eveleth of RMF Engineering, which managed the project.
The new thermal energy storage system is located at the Centennial Campus Central Utility Plant. By allowing NC State to store chilled water, the system is expected to reduce energy costs by more than $250,000 annually. Additionally, the system creates additional capacity for a growing Centennial Campus.
