In 2021, Stasis Energy Group successfully began its BRIDGE project with installs at ten (10) sites across California. In Q1 2023, the project concluded the baseline data collection period and all TESS (thermal energy storage units) are installed and performance data collection has begun across all 10 sites. The BRIDGE sites, from West Sacramento to San Diego, represent a wide variety of businesses, HVAC equipment, climate zones, and occupancy profiles. Nine of the ten sites are DAC/LIC, underserved communities. Stasis Energy Group has made improvements to both the form factor and thermal storage controller algorithms deployed due to learnings from the baseline data collection period. These changes reflect increased performance, lower installed costs and better occupant comfort across a wider range of installations throughout the State of California.
This project supports the deployment and demonstration of Thermal Energy Storage Systems (TESS) for packaged HVAC systems at ten commercial buildings, more than half of which are located in disadvantaged or low-income communities. Stasis Energy Group will demonstrate peak shifting performance of its TESS across a wide range of roof-top unit types, climate zones and buildings. This solution is intended to be easily and economically installed or retrofitted into existing packaged HVAC systems to provide a cost-effective solution. In addition, the proposed technology aims to reduce utility bills for building owners, promote grid resilience by shifting electricity load away from peak hours, and to improve the payback period.
The proposed technology is intended to lower electricity costs of business owners by shifting their use out of peak periods.
The product aims to simplify the challenge facing grid operators by increasing use of daytime renewable energy and reducing use of late-afternoon and evening ramp-up energy, thus reducing the risk of energy shortages.
