» These places are open and receive a lot of people 10 hours per day
» They are empty during the night
» Heat load are directly linked to external conditions and the number of persons inside the building, as well as the number of lights and booth devices producing heat.
» The air conditioning needs are high during almost 6 hours
» Chillers capacity is reduced as part of the load is provided by the storage done during the night
» Smaller electrical installation
» Lower operating costs due to a reduction in peak utility usage, maintenance and more efficient use of chillers
» Less space required for cooling towers and chillers, and more space available for the main business
Base assumptions :
» Exhibition centers are open from 10.00 am till 8.00 pm
» During the night, chillers are used for accumulating cold energy.
» Cooling needs are covered by direct production associated with an Ice Spray system
