Thermal Energy Storage (TES)

Thermal Energy Storage (TES) has long been used to reduce operating energy costs associated with on-peak electricity and demand charges. The process is also commonly employed in new construction and at times of retrofit expansions or chiller replacements. By sizing chiller plants for average (rather than peak) cooling loads, TES often results in capital cost savings in addition to reducing operating energy costs. 21st-century energy users will obtain even greater benefits from the flexibility that TES provides to manage peak power in future energy markets.

Amana Pipeline Construction has entered into the engineering design and construction of such Thermal Energy Storage (TES) which provide peak load management (and often, substantial capital cost savings) for large air conditioning or process cooling applications, for a broad range of Commercial, Industrial, Institutional, and Government facilities. In this regard, the company has entered into Commercial Agreements with John Andrepont who is the founder and president of The Cool Solutions Company. The company provides professional services in support of the technical and commercial development of Thermal Energy Storage (TES), District Cooling (DC), and Turbine Inlet Cooling (TIC) applications. John has been involved in the development of over 100 (TES) projects and more than a dozen District Energy (DC) systems, as well as massive and small (TIC) projects, on five continents.

He is· an active member of:

  • ASHRAE, serving on its technical committees for Thermal Storage, District Energy, and Cogeneration Systems, and on the subcommittee for Combustion Turbine Inlet Cooling
  • IDEA (International District Energy Association), having served as a Director for five years and as Technical Chair of 3 Cooling Conferences
  • TICA (Turbine Inlet Cooling Association), serving as a Director and past-Chair
  • John graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, with Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Mechanical Engineering. He is the inventor of over a dozen U.S. patents.
