Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Chilled water storage has been in use in Western Australia for more than a decade and is recognized there as a valuable complement to chilled water systems serving campuses and other large loads. Factors affecting the application of thermal storage in Western Australia are discussed. Characteristics of four chilled water systems in or near Perth, the capital city, are described. Comparisons are drawn between conditions and practices in Australia and the United States. The success of chilled water storage projects in Western Australia without demand-side management incentives demonstrates its intrinsic benefits when appropriately applied.
