The Texas Instruments Manufacturing Plant – Chilled Water Storage System is a 6,400kW energy storage project located in Dallas, Texas, US.
The thermal energy storage project uses chilled water as its storage technology. The project was announced in 2013.
The Texas Instruments Manufacturing Plant – Chilled Water Storage System was developed by Texas Instruments. The project is owned by Texas Instruments (100%).
The key applications of the project are electric bill management and electric energy time shift.
DN Tanks and Texas Instruments have delivered the project.
The system is a partially buried 2.7 MG, 24,500 ton-hr thermal energy storage (TES) tank for the purpose of saving energy costs by taking advantage of the time-of-use electric rates. The TES system was designed to shift the electric load of the chillers and associated cooling equipment from the on-peak periods (daytime), to the off-peak periods (night time).
