NIH plans thermal energy storage system for Bethesda campus

Ben Welter - Wednesday, September 23, 2015

The National Institutes of Health is moving ahead with plans to install a thermal energy storage system at its campus in Bethesda, Md. The system will store up to 9 million gallons of chilled water. Components will include a storage tank, at or partly below grade, with a footprint of about 12,000 square feet. The system is among upgrades designed to ensure uninterrupted cooling capability for a 240-bed hospital, three data centers and more than 12 million square feet of biomedical research facilities.
