      Axiom Exergy Energy Storage Assists Whole Foods Market Los Altos Store in Shifting up to 1040 kWh of Electricity to Lower Costs

      RICHMOND, Calif., and LOS GATOS, Calif., April 25, 2017 - Axiom Exergy has completed the first installation of its thermal energy storage solution, the Refrigeration Battery at a Whole Foods Market store in Los Altos, California. The project successfully demonstrates the viability and potential of their energy storage solution by shifting up to 1040 kWh of electricity load at the facility for up to 10 hours a day over the course of several months. Without any changes to staff behavior or daily operations, the pilot demonstrated consistent, daily electricity load-shifting by offsetting electricity used by refrigeration compressors and condensers to off-peak times of day. Additionally, Whole Foods Market facility managers now receive real-time information about the system's performance via Axiom's integrated cloud monitoring platform including enterprise-level monitoring and analytics, historical data and real-time KPIs like kWh shifted, peak kW reduced, and battery charge level.
