Physical Plant Hosts Calmac/Trane

Ice storage Seminar | October 27, 2006

On Thursday October 19, 2006 Xavier hosted a mini-seminar on ice storage as presented by Calmac and in association with Trane Corporation. Approximately five institutions were present. Attendees were: Trane Corporation, Calmac, Cincinnati Public Schools, Wilmington Schools, Clinton Massie Schools, St. Xavier High School and Lakota Local Schools. An outline of the benefits of ice storage was followed by a tour of Xavier's two ice storage systems. Xavier has used these ice storage systems for many years to reduce operating costs by controlling peak electrical demand.

As a result of this meeting, Wilmington, Clinton Massie, St. Xavier and Lakota are requesting meetings to change current projects to add ice storage. Ice storage will continue to be part of Xavier's ongoing energy/cost management stratergy.
