Thermal Energy Storage in Commercial Buildings

Research output: NRELFact Sheet


Space heating and cooling account for as much as 40% of energy used in commercial buildings. Aligning this energy consumption with renewable energy generation through practical and viable energy storage solutions will be pivotal in achieving 100% clean energy by 2050. Integrated on-site renewable energy sources and thermal energy storage systems can provide a significant reduction of carbon emissions and operational costs for the building owner.
