Evaluation of Permanent Load Shift Technologies and Development of Pre-Feasibility Tool

The main objectives of this project are: (1) to provide a market characterization and technology review of energy storage and load shift technologies; (2) to review and advance existing EnergyPlus™ building simulation models used for predicting thermal energy storage savings; and (3) to develop a free, open-source, cloud-based tool based on EnergyPlus to estimate energy savings and implementation costs for thermal energy storage systems used in buildings.
