By Carmen

The 25.6 MW Ice Energy Thermal Storage System is a 25,600kW energy storage project located in California, US.

The thermal energy storage project uses ice as its storage technology. The project was announced in 2017.


The 25.6 MW Ice Energy Thermal Storage System is owned by Ice Energy (100%).

The key applications of the project are grid stability, electric bill management and electric energy time shift.

Contractors involved

Ice Energy is the owner. Ice Energy is the technology provider for the project.

Additional information

The Ice Bear freezes ice at night when demand for power is low, capacity is abundant and increasingly sourced from renewables such as wind power. Then during the day, stored ice is used to provide cooling, instead of the power-intensive AC compressor. Ice Bears are deployed in smart-grid enabled, megawatt-scale fleets, and each Ice Bear can reduce harmful CO2 emissions by up to 10 tons per year. Installation is as quick as deploying a standard AC system.
