Peak power, air-conditioning and cool storage.


Cool storage assisted air-conditioning systems can be very helpful in reducing the peak power demand growth, currently, estimated at around 350 MW per year. Ministry of Energy can save well over quarter million Kuwaiti Dinars by attenuating up to 750 MW. This paper presents a summary of cool storage concept, system options and our experiences in this field for over two decades.
