Energy Storage Solutions (Ongoing)
Intermittent renewable energy and reduction of peak energy demand can be mitigated with energy storage solutions. The Thermal Energy Storage Tank at F&S is a key feature of energy storage already existing on campus. The huge tank of 6.5 million gallons of chilled water has "Illinois" written on it and is easily visible from the entrance to campus at Kirby and Oak in Champaign.
Additional energy storage solutions are being researched and proposed for integration in the campus energy systems.
