    How Does Thermal Energy Storage Reach Scale?

    A vital technology for securing deep greenhouse gas reductions exists and works well, but still hasn't achieved widespread deployment. Thermal energy storage has succeeded in the field for decades. Precooling an insulated vat of liquid can chop an electricity bill and reduce peak load, as companies like Calmac and Ice Energy have shown. An experimental housing development in Canada uses underground thermal energy storage, powered by solar energy in the summer, to cover its heating needs through the frigid Alberta winters.
