I.C.E Storage – In Case of Emergency – Thermal Energy Storage and the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022
ASHRAE Miami held their last meeting on Tuesday, Feb 21st, 2023 at 6-8 pm at the 94th Aero Squadron in Miami, FL.
The presentation was titled I.C.E Storage–In Case of Emergency – Thermal Energy Storage and the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 by Bruce Lindsay, PE. This presentation examined the role thermal energy storage can play to make air conditioning systems more resilient in hot and humid climates. It is based on a draft report from the US Army that examines resiliency of thermal energy systems.
It is also based on Mr. Lindsay’s experiences managing 20 ice storage systems and 74 central energy plants for Brevard Public Schools.
Thermal energy storage systems were recently qualified by the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 to receive a 40% investment tax credit and that can be coupled with utility rebates. Thermal energy storage is now the low cost option in southern Florida and provides flexibility as the utility industry undergoes its transition to 100% renewable energy.
The upcoming Miami Chapter meeting to be held on March 22nd regarding Emerging Chiller Technology.
