Axiom Exergy makes the Refrigeration Battery™, a thermal energy storage retrofit system that enables supermarkets to “store refrigeration” for later use.
The Refrigeration Battery™ enables supermarkets to shift refrigeration loads from expensive on-peak hours to off-peak hours, saving substantial energy costs, while increasing their razor-thin profit margins.
The average US supermarket:
The Refrigeration Battery™ enables supermarkets to purchase cheap electricity at night, store it as thermal energy, and then use it in the afternoon when electricity is expensive.
It also provides backup refrigeration, reducing the risk of food spoilage during power outages, as it takes as little as two hours without power for produce, prepared foods, and meat to spoil.
The system is simple, high-value, and low risk for customers.
