HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Viking Cold Solutions, the leading Thermal Energy Storage (TES) provider, will work with Constellation, an Exelon (NYSE:EXC) company and a leading competitive energy provider, to offer its commercial and industrial refrigeration customers access to Constellation’s unique Efficiency Made Easy® (EME) program. The EME program helps businesses implement optimal energy conservation measures, such as Viking Cold’s TES systems, with no upfront capital expenditure. The cost for the upgrades is included in the monthly charges that appear on their Constellation power and gas supply bills.
In 2018, Constellation EME customers collectively saved 80,000 megawatt hours of electricity and prevented the emissions of 36,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide.
With refrigeration ranking as the third highest category in electricity consumption, the cold storage industry is a prime target for efficiency and demand management solutions. Frozen food manufacturers and distributors, grocers, and other retailers can all benefit from the efficiency gains and load shed capabilities of TES.
Viking Cold’s TES systems provide customers with a proven solution to meet their temperature requirements while managing the energy costs of their storage freezers. Viking Cold’s innovative application of Phase Change Materials combined with intelligent controls, and 24/7 remote monitoring increases energy efficiency an average of 26% and adds time-of-use flexibility to avoid demand-based pricing for up to 13 hours while improving temperature stability.
“We value companies like Constellation who are leaders in providing sustainable efficiency technology to their customers,” says James Bell, CEO of Viking Cold. “The Viking Cold team looks forward to assisting Constellation’s refrigeration customers to increase efficiency and reduce their environmental impact.”
